How do you budget for the 4th of July?
Do you treat it like Christmas and just save up?
Do you just pull from your emergency fund to pay for fireworks or extra food for family?
Do you just not do anything out of the ordinary?
4th of July is also my son's b-day. We usually do a cookout with family and kind of split the cost with my mom. Where my mom lives we can see fireworks from 4-5 different towns so everyone goes there on the 4th. We will do the meat, cake and some sides, my mom will do decorations and sides and drinks and my brother and cousins buy fireworks to set off. other family members will also bring sides or drinks if need be.
We usually do the cookout, go to my aunts (2 mins away) to swim, back to my moms for cake, ice cream, presents and then watch and set off fireworks
