  • I have never heard of that before, but who knows. The 4th is supposed to be an American holliday though, ya know the signing of the Declaration of Independance, hence Independance Day. Unless the pagens invented fireworks...lol

  • I was going to say an unequivocal NO... but then I saw the fireworks question and okay... so that aspect came from a non-Christian culture.

    But so did the paisley design, so I'm hoping no one takes off on a "I avoid fireworks because they're from a pagan source" kick.

    Now, if you disagree with the way this nation was formed, or have a religious mandate to remain entirely separate from politics (no voting, no Pledge of Allegiance, etc) then perhaps you would avoid the 4th for those reasons. Nothing to do with paganism though.
