Next Saturday is July 4th, are you looking forward to it?

I looked at the calendar today and realized next Saturday is July 4th and it's a day me and my family dread, now. Because, on that day in 2011 my grandpa (my mom's dad) passed away unexpectedly from heart attack in his condo. So, that day has a sadness over it for us now. It will be I think four years since he passed and we're already depressed thinking about. Plus, my dog is afraid of all the fire crackers and loud noises that occur on that day. So, much of that time is spend telling her to stop barking and trying to calm her down.

I know most people like the 4th, which is actual great. I don't enjoy many holidays anymore and I kind of envy people that do, I miss being joyful about certain holidays. Which, is why I'm wondering if anybody is looking forward to next Staurday and how you intend to spend it?

  • Yes, this year I also dread the holiday, because I'm sort of over the barrel in a tight spot that I might not be able to get out of, and that will culminate about the 4th.

  • If you meant all you can eat BBQ then yup! I'm looking forward to it. I'm sorry for your loss though. Must be hard to associate a depressing event with a holiday that is pretty much all about celebrating.

  • It's unfortunate that that day now has a bad association for you :(

    But I'll be working that day. So not exactly a big day for me either.

  • I'm sorry to hear about your grandfather. I'm hoping to enjoy next Saturday because of the Fireworks and my town is having a street dance. I also hope to see my crush and see where it goes.
