The morning after the 4th of July might feel a bit like a letdown. The steaks and hot dogs have been grilled, fireworks have been set off, and you may have even watched a local parade. But now what? With the 4th of July done and gone, the next major holiday for Americans is Labor Day, all the way in September! So now what? Are the dog days of summer here? Was the highlight this 4th of July the world famous Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, where professional eater Joey Chestnut ate more than 60 hot dogs in 10 minutes?
Thankfully, the answer to the above questions is a resounding no! The best part of summer is not over, you still have time to celebrate the 4th of July, and last but certainly not least, you do not have to eat 60 hot dogs like Joey Chestnut did in order to experience some thrills this summer. DealDash has you covered because our Independence Day Clearance Sale is in full swing! Keep reading to find out more about this exciting DealDash event and to also learn about summer celebrations from other parts of the world.
Summer celebrations from around the world
Most Americans have July 4th marked down on their calander, and for good reason; the 4th of July is one of the biggest holidays of the year. Most folks celebrate Independence day by lighting off some fireworks, enjoying picnics or barbecues with friends, or spending some time outdoors.
The vast majority of Americans celebrate the 4th of July, over 85% according to recent surveys, so even if you don’t celebrate the 4th yourself, you don’t have to look far to see some fireworks.
But what about other parts of the world? Each country has different celebrations for important days of the year, and in most places outside of the USA, the 4th of July does not mean a whole lot. For example, what significance does the end of June have to you? For most Americans, the answer is ”not much”, but in Finland the end of June marks the important midsummer celebrations! Finnish Midsummer, known as Juhannus, celebrates the arrival of summer. The midsummer celebrations take place on the summer equinox, so the date can vary.
People gather around bonfires, play games with friends outdoors, and spend time in the beautiful finnish nature. It is very common for folks to travel to the countryside to spend time camping or in summer cabins.
Just about each country in the world has their own summer celebrations, ranging from White Nights in St. Petersburg, Russia, to the Puck Festival in Ireland. If you find yourself traveling during the summer months, do some research and see if there are any unique summer celebrations you can enjoy!
