The 4th of July is just around the corner, and for some, it’s a big deal. If you’re one of those people, then you might want to get a jump on preparing for the day! In this week’s Nantucket Gate Blog, we’ve got a few tips on how you can better prepare for and enjoy the celebration on the 4th of July. We hope you get some good insights as you read this week’s blog!

Shop Early

If you’re going to be celebrating with others, getting a jump on buying the necessary items for your celebration will be a great benefit to you. The last thing you want is to be going shopping last minute and realizing that there’s nothing left to get! Getting ahead of it will allow you to secure the necessary ingredients for whatever you choose to serve at your celebration, even if it’s just something simple like hot dogs or hamburgers. 

Don’t Forget the Sunscreen

Barring inclement weather, the 4th of July is generally going to be hot and sunny, even here in Tacoma, WA, which is why you should remember to purchase (if you don’t already have some) sunscreen to keep your skin from being damaged by the sun while you’re enjoying your Independence Day. 

Be Respectful

Independence Day is known for fireworks, parades, and extravagant festivities, but don’t forget to ensure that everyone is having a good time. Being respectful of others is the simplest, yet most effective way to enjoy your holiday. But what does being respectful mean? Though it’s a day of loud festivities, there is a time when the fireworks, loud yelling, and generally raucousness needs to die down. There are people with children who sleep at an earlier time, so keep that in mind when you’re participating in your Independence Day celebrations.
