We here at I See the Frog would like to take a moment to celebrate life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness… AKA the 4th of July.

With so many wonderful friends readying their swimsuits and their BBQ grills and their carpools for travels unknown, we wanted to take a moment to comment on the true meaning of the holiday.



What 4th of July celebration is complete without fireworks? Exactly. There IS no celebration and the holiday would lay flat and be just another day off if there wasn’t exploding things to mark the occasion.

Because, freedom.

To start, let’s look at this most amazing footage captured by a drone – RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ‘SPLODING AWESOME!

As the video rightly supposes, this IS what it must look like for Superman.

Now we go from one amazing exploding celebration to another amazing exploding celebration. However, this one comes with the word FAIL next to it.

While nothing can really top a bird’s eye view of exploding freedom, witnessing a firework display going off ALL AT THE SAME TIME is a close second.

For starters, here’s a look at what happens when every single firework goes off at the same time… from far away.

Pretty amazing. And although it’s a definite fail, it’ still an amazing scene to witness. We only wonder what it looked like up close….?

Thanks YouTube!

Now that we’ve taken you through the sky, up close and personal to the danger zone, how about we slow it down a bit with a fireworks display that goes off without a hitch.

Here’s Disney’s 4th of July Celebration. Which is amazing.

Switching gears now…

Who knows the real reason we celebrate the 4th of July?


(We would have accepted this answer on principle alone if we didn’t find the below video.)

Maybe you’re confused, in general, about why we celebrate the 4th of July AKA Freedom. If you don’t have the froggiest idea as to why you are BBQ’ing, holding a beer in one hand and a firework in the other, then clearly you are not alone.

We here at the Frog would like to remedy that by offering up this quiz. It’s important that you study, learn and share your answers with us so we can give you a passing grade. Because America deserves better.
