I Hate 4th of July

    I hate 4th of July! So annoying with the

    aggressive jingoism, arrogance, and hubris. Even the loud colors are tacky. Wonder-bread in-your-face red-white-and-blue. Prefer the cool elegance of a contemplative Christmas hymn or gentle pastels of Easter.

    Wow, I'm Not Alone!

    I just sat down at my computer and typed in "why do I hate 4th of July?" and this site popped up. Wow, I can't believe there are others of you who feel the same way! I always thought I was the only one (I feel bad, like I'm unpatriotic -- but I'm not)! For years I have been...

    Hating July 4th Half A Century

    By mistake, my aunt allowed my 2 year old Boston Terrier to chomp grass during the 4th of July weekend.  I had specifically told her not to let him eat but she thought chewing grass was good for dogs' stomachs.  That may be true, but practice on your own dog first. He...

    Always Alone

    The only real reason is because I am always alone on this holiday. I see gatherings of people watching fireworks, having BBQs and all the other 4th of July related stuff. I want so badly to be a part of that, but I have nobody in my life to do those things with.

    Stupid Holiday

    I just hate the 4th. I don't know when it started, when i was younger, i was excited because I was allowed to play with fireworks, and got to stay up late, now I find it to just be a nuisance. I never do anything on the 4th, I'm periodically abandoned by those people I call...
