Ways That Vaping and July 4th Go Together
July 4th in America is one of the best holidays of the year - especially this year, since it’s the culmination of an epic three day weekend. As a vaper, you should get ready for some stellar outdoor vaping sessions in the warm sun. Sit outside with a nice cold beer in one hand and your vape in the other, relaxing with your friends. Perhaps start up the grill, and enjoy some tasty hamburgers or chicken alongside your vaping goodness.
Vaping and the Fourth of July go together hand-in-hand, both realistically and metaphorically. As most of us know, the Fourth of July signifies the day that our Declaration of Independence was signed into law. This adoption of the Declaration on July 4th, 1776, meant that the thirteen existing American colonies now were recognized as a brand new nation. Now, the Fourth of July is recognized throughout the country as an official holiday. Marked by patriotic displays like prominent flag displays, decorations, parades, fireworks, and the traditional 13-gun salute for the 13 colonies, it’s hard to miss the celebrations. Somewhat surprisingly, the vaping scene has quite a few symbolic parallels to the Fourth of July.
One such parallel is that of the sense of freedom. Vaping, as a hobby, is still considered much of an outsider’s hobby to the vast majority of Americans. Most people still consider it a form of traditional smoking, and will probably look down upon and judge those who do vape. However, by bringing your vaping into the public eye by vaping prominently on the Fourth of July, it’s almost as if you are having your own display of freedom. Because the Fourth i about celebrating America’s independence from the British Empire, you can celebrate your vaping independence from the ideals of those who judge you. In a similar vein, there is symbolism in that freedom for traditional smokers who have converted to vaping. As America did willingly split from the British Empire, so did the vapers who willingly split from traditional smoking to pursue a healthier hobby. Vape proudly to show your independence from a much more harmful habit.
You cannot miss the symbolism in the 13-gun salute. Thirteen guns are fired at an angle into the air, marking the 13 colonies that made the grand decision to create the United States of America. Something else that is fired into the air around America are the omnipresent firework displays. Some historians think that fireworks are used now to emulate that 13-gun salute, in fact. Much like these dazzling displays shot into the air, your vapor clouds can be considered another salute to the independence of the country. The huge clouds can be shot up into the air, and whirling bits of vapor will gently fall or get whisked into the sky.
If you’re vaping on July 4th, don’t just make it another regular vaping session. Take a moment to reflect on the history of our country, and to think of the parallels of your vaping to the celebrations held around the country. From fireworks and salutes to an overarching sense of freedom, your vaping cements you as a true American.
