Land of the Spree

Lei Chic We hate to do this, but well, sooner or later you're going to have to accept the truth.

Independence Day is the greatest holiday of the year.

Just think about it. What other holiday gives you 1) an entire day off to eat and drink as much as humanly possible; 2) the chance to see massive explosives detonate in the sky; 3) a reason to dress up (because you look so fierce in red, white and blue); and 4) lots of presents; all rolled into one?

We should probably clarify that last part…

See, stores across the country are celebrating our nation's 236th birthday with a slew of sales. It's your patriotic duty to honor them. And since the country really has no use for, say, a whisper silk scarf or a black-and-white striped mini, you get to reap the benefits.

God bless America. Land of the spree and home of the save.
