Independence Day is coming up this Saturday and many are wondering how they can celebrate while still practicing safe social distancing

Watch on TV

Many cities have canceled their festivities, and with that, the main draw: fireworks. But some are moving forward. Your best, and safest, bet is to watch either in your backyard or on a TV or computer screen. No, it won’t be as good as the real thing. But it’s a small price to pay for your health and safety.

People traditionally used Evergreen Fir branches to decorate their homes during the Winter solstice, as it made them think of the spring to come. The Romans used Fir Trees to decorate their temples at the festival of Saturnalia. And Christians use it as a sign of everlasting life with God.

Although history is not completely clear on the actual origin of the modern Christmas tree, Germany is generally credited with starting the tradition as we now know it
