My cookies and I would like to wish you a wonderful, safe and happy 4th of July with all the wonderment and celebration John Adams felt on July 2, 1776 in a letter to his beloved Abigail.

“I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more”.
