It’s Patriotic Day.

Happy 4th of July week – from all of us at Louisa Jane.

In honor of this patriotic holiday, we wanted to share a couple fun facts that you may not know about the 4th of July – in fact, as hard to believe as it is, we did not know them either.

  1. Only two people actually signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th – John Hancock and Charles Thomson. Everyone else did on August 2nd.
  2. Calvin Coolidge, former United States President, was born on July 4th.
  3. Three United States Presidents have died on July 4th – John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Monroe. In fact, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died on July 4th, 1826 – the 50th Anniversary of the United States.
  4. Fireworks have been a part of the 4th of July celebrations from the start. In 1884, miners in Swan, Colorado blew up the town’s post office because it wasn’t supplied with fireworks.
  5. Americans consume around 155 million hotdogs on the 4th of July every year.

And since we are at it – some facts about Louisa Jane and 4th of July.

  1. We love the 4th.
  2. We are off the 4th – so yes, there will be 4th of July fireworks and hotdogs.
  3. We love the 4th.
  4. Darrel and Karl potentially could be wearing an American Flag on his shirt at any moment in time.
  5. We love the 4th.
  6. We thank the good Lord above for this land of the Free and home of the Brave. And for all of those who gave their lives to preserve this freedom.

Well, that’s all for this week, folks. Let freedom ring!
