However, I was watching t.v. and low and behold I heard a fireworks show. Went out on my porch where the entire thing was visible, I could hear the "army band" and the people cheering. Best from far away as fireworks have always hurt my ears.
Couldn't even remember the point of the holiday until evening. First thing I notice every holiday are sales, places closed, buses not running on schedule, so it's tough to remember what these holidays were originally supposed to mean.
