So I have a lot of ribbon left over from the flag clippies.  Really, there is a LOT.  I figured it would most likely sit there until inspiration struck again.  The inspiration was to give away some flag clippies.  Woohoo!  I've never done a giveaway before, so I'm totally excited about it.  Flag Day is coming up next week.  So the contest will run until then.

How to enter:
1. Become a follower and leave a comment telling me your favorite Independence Day tradition.

That's all!  If more than 20 people enter we'll have three winners.  Each winner gets two clippies on their choice of alligator or french clip, as well as their choice of flapping or straight flag.  I'm excited!

I'll start off the traditions.  I love going to all the activities in Provo.  The patriotic service is inspirational, Colonial Days is educational, the parade is wonderful to spend time with family, and I can't make it through without a Texas Twister from Freedom Days.  Maybe it's cheating to use the Freedom Festival activities as my favorite tradition, but that's how it is.  Family barbecues and fireworks also top the charts.

Good luck to all!  The contest will end on Flag Day (June 14) at 5 pm MST.  I'll choose a winner randomly. Check back to see if you won!


  1. Great giveaway!
    I don't know if I can pick a favorite tradition, I just love everything about July 4th! It's always been my very favorite holiday. I guess if I had it pick it would be the fireworks.

  2. My favorite 4th tradition was going with my dad to the parade while he directed traffic and then we would go to kfc

  3. When we lived in Utah we usually went to the Stadium of Fire, which I loved. Except when Miley Cyrus was the performer. That one...not so much. Now we just do typical 4th of July stuff: parade, bbq, fireworks, and get sunburned. Still fun, but there's nothing like the Stadium of Fire.
