Being from a small town in Colorado, Fourth of July was always a day to look forward to. We would get on our bikes and head to downtown Loveland to watch the parade. I loved scrambling after the candy thrown from the floats! I would excitedly jump up and down and wave my flag back and forth as the Larimer County Queen would ride by in her glittery chaps and dazzling cowgirl hat, wishing I could be her!
I know they have the fourth day of July every year in Leipzig, but I have my doubts that it will look anything like Fourth of July in Indiana or Colorado. I'll have to get used to fireworks on January 1 and "autobahns" (highways) that look like speedways, as they have no speed limit! I know I'll miss much about living here in America, but I also am looking forward to experiencing the culture, community and quirks of living in Leipzig.
I would love to hear some of your Fourth of July traditions and memories! I'm sure they're as quirky as mine!!
