Patriotic Holidays to Celebrate
With Flag Day, Juneteenth, and Independence Day, there are plenty of reasons to have fun and celebrate. First up is:
Flag Day – on June 14th. It commemorates the day in 1777 that the US adopted the Betsy Ross flag! Few women are mentioned in early American history, so I’m glad this lady is one I like. Betsy is a woman after my own heart – she was involved and crafty!
Juneteenth or June 19th – marks the day that the Emancipation Proclamation went into effect. This gave enslaved people their freedom in 1865. The holiday is one for family and freedom. Make sure to celebrate how far we’ve come! And don’t forget: plan for the improvements we have yet to make!
Independence Day or the Fourth of July – already has its own color scheme. You’ve gotta love the red, white, and blue! Since the other two holidays are also about American history, I’m going to use the same color scheme for all three. This gives me an excuse to have summer party decor up longer! Brilliant, isn’t it?
