Happy Fourth of July greetings from America’s favorite electronic cigarette! Trivia fans, did you know: That the actual separation of the original 13 States from Great Britain actually happened on July 2nd, 1776 – when a resolution to that effect was approved by the US Congress? But “July 4, 1776” is the date that appears in the Declaration of Independence – which is why we celebrate Independence Day on this day!
Did you know that only two of the 56 signatories actually signed the document on July 4th – and that most of them signed on August 2, 1776? Can you guess the oldest signatory? The state with the most delegates who signed? The four other countries who celebrate July 4?
Playing Independence Day trivia is one of the ways people celebrate America’s biggest secular holiday. People also traditionally celebrate this day by going to picnics, parades, and fireworks. Many families display the Stars and Stripes from their homes or on their cars…and dress up in patriotic red, white, and blue. History buffs visit Philadelphia’s Liberty Bell and other historic sites…go to Boston’s Freedom Trail and hear a reading of the Declaration of Independence…or see the fireworks over the Washington Monument and the National Independence Day Parade on Constitution Avenue in Washington, DC. Meanwhile, regular folks both young and old simply take this day as an opportunity to hit the beaches, malls, or barbeque with friends.
The Declaration of Independence is one of the most inspiring documents of our time. And its message of freedom resonates with me as an American and an e-cigarette smoker. Not to draw comparisons between different and unrelated things, but taking back your freedom IS the message underlying the concept of electronic cigarettes! For example, I can enjoy my favorite brand, Green Smoke® e-cigs, in a bar, at the beach, even at work. I love the sense of freedom that comes with smoking anytime and (almost) anywhere I want!
So as a Green Smoke® e-cig user, I have declared my independence too! And my right to choose a product without the:
• Inconvenience of cigarette ash, butts, and odor
• Limitations imposed by “no-smoking” bans
• High price of smoking regular cigarettes
• Social life-restricting smoke and smoker’s breath
• Environment-damaging cigarette butts
• Safety risks like risk of fire
• Boredom due to lack of flavor options
That said, I’m celebrating MY freedom to smoke almost anywhere by taking my Green Smoke® ecigarettes this July 4th to the beach, concert, parade, mall, ball park, block party and, especially the fireworks! No worries if I’ll have enough to last me through all that action. Green Smoke’s flavor- and smoke volume-maximizing FlavorMax™ technology, plus long-lasting Green Smoke batteries, will carry me through the entire Independence Day weekend!
