Celebrate July 4th with this Independence Day HubMob

Updated on June 28, 2011

A Holiday by Any Other Name....

As a Canadian, I have some awareness of the similarity between our holiday dates and those of our American neighbours. For example, we Canadians celebrate Canada Day (Dominion Day for those of us who remember) on July 1st and most of us know that the U.S. celebrates July 4th with flags and fireworks. We do the same on July 1st. Although I have had an inkling that the American July 4th was the same thing as Independence Day, I have only sought confirmation of that this week. Thank-you rmr and Patty Inglish for clarifying.

For some reason or other, Independence Day sounds BIG to me. It sounds vitally important, in fact, like an enormous victory and liberation. I cannot claim to know a lot about the holiday or its celebrations but I have a feeling that it is as it sounds, a really big deal.

I hope you will all join me in discovering more about the American July 4th Independence Day by reading the hubs below. Even if you are from a different country, please celebrate the HubMobsters (authors) who are offering the information by leaving them some feedback. I know they'll appreciate it.

Meet the HubMob Team

Each week, your devoted HubMob team seeks ways of making your HubMobbing experience fun and informative.

Ryan Hupfer (Hup) is a bonifide HubPages employee and super Communicator of Awesomeness. Hup is like the president of HubMob land. He gives us direction and keeps the fun and energy alive.

Princessa is the team lead who feeds us the step-by-step instruction and encouragement that we all need to be successful HubMobsters. You can see what I mean by visiting this week's forum thread.

ProCW designs the terrific graphics that we use every week in our HubMob. He's a hubber, as well as an independent writer.

Shirley Anderson (that's me!) moves all the hubs from the weekly forum thread to a central hub for ease in finding and reading all of the work produced for that particular HubMob.  I guess you can say that I write the hub hub.


*** And now, a word from our sponsor ***

      "Ask not for whom the Hub waits; it waits for thee"" -- to write it, all you Hubbers out there!

      Perhaps one small mob and but few Hubbers so far. More will arrive soon. Perhaps people are not yet excited about the 4th. More parodies might be good...The blooper Hub reminded me of all the pardodies of Kennedy and Camelot..

      cindyvine - yours was very creative.

      Hi Cindy! Yeah, we're off to a slow start but usually, it picks up towards the end of the week. Hopefully....

      Hey, Patty! I had to chuckle at your quote. How noble you make our process sound. I feel elevated just reading it. :)

      Glad you like the Hemingway ad. Oops! Does Hemingway have 2 'm's? I'd better make the appropriate change. Glad you mentioned it, thanks!

      Patty, are you sure there are 2 'm's?

      Neat!

      I'm always going around telling people "Happy Boxing Day!"....most people, being that I live in the U.S., just think I'm nuts. ;)

      Well lxxy, you just keeping hanging around with us Canadians and you'll fit in perfectly.

      I did not know that the U.S. doesn't celebrate Boxing Day until 3 years ago. Amazing. Since then, I've figured out that our Boxing Day is not a lot different from your Black Friday (I think that's right).

      Thanks for supporting our HubMobsters, lxxy!
