With or without the current coronavirus pandemic, people can always find ways to celebrate. With the Fourth of July coming soon, families can find multiple ways to rejoice in America’s independence from the comfort of home. If you have a backyard deck, you have the perfect platform to have a fantastic holiday celebration. Here are a few ways to celebrate July 4th on deck.
Have a Cookout
When cooking outdoors on the grill, one must always be careful to prevent fires. Keep the grill away from the house and place it on fire-resistant material. This is essential, especially if you have a wood deck. Nevertheless, nothing says “American holiday” like cooking hamburgers and hotdogs outdoors.
Cook Over the Fire
If you have a deck, you may also have a fire pit. Few experiences are more classically American than roasting hotdogs or toasting marshmallows over the open fire. Enjoy making s’mores with your family and friends as you commemorate the nation’s history and freedom.
Hang Out in the Hot Tub
Decks can also support hot tubs, and it’s never too late to get one. Holidays are meant for celebration, but they are also opportunities to take a break and unwind. A professional deck contractor can guide you in how your deck could support a hot tub for year-round enjoyment.
Camp Under the Stars
July is a great month for spending time outdoors, which makes hanging out on the deck a perfect way to go. After spending the afternoon and evening outdoors in the balmy weather, why stop there? Keep on dry ground and partake of the night sky by camping out in your own backyard. If it rains, take it to the sunroom.
The best way to celebrate July 4th is to remember the country’s history and to be thankful for the great benefits we have in living here. Movies provide entertainment, relaxation, meditation, and conversation, and are great for the purpose of enjoying American history and culture. If you have an outdoor living area, a TV or projector screen can turn it into a theater room.
Celebrate with Friends and Family
Lastly, since Maryland’s stay at home restrictions have lifted since May, Marylanders are free to meet in small groups again. If there is a time to fellowship with family and friends, it is July 4th weekend. To keep safe from the crowds, you can host the festivities at home.
