We spend the same amount on fireworks as we do on beer?!?!

Here’s something we didn’t know… The Fourth of July is the number one BEER-DRINKING holiday in the United States  We will spend approximately $1 BILLION on beer for tomorrow’s festivities.

 

There are more than 16,000 fireworks shows on the Fourth of July, which will cost a total of more than $1 billion.  Unfortunately, around 870 people go to the emergency room in firework related accidents every year with an average of eight  deaths.

 

There were 2.5 million residents when the United States became an independent country in 1776.  Now there’s  approximately 327.2 million. That’s a big jump!
