I love the 4th of July. Usually, we have warm and summery weather (we should in July, but this is Wisconsin!!) and our garden and a yard is green and full. Everyone in our neighborhood is outdoors and enjoying being together with friends and family. It ends with fireworks nearby and more celebrating late into the night. We used to have parties and I love the patriotic theme but more and more we’re enjoying just being home over the holiday. Either way, it’s a time to celebrate and treats are necessary! 4th of July Popcorn is festive and tasty. Make your own popcorn or skip a step and use bagged popcorn.
