Friday Five: Independence Day Edition

This week's RevGalBlogPals Friday Five is all about the holidays (belated Happy Canada Day, by the way, to all of you above the border):

1. Barbeques or picnics ( or are they essentially the same thing)?
With the disclaimer that Southerners and Westerners would both take offense at our labeling our wienie roasts and grilled chicken dinners "barbecues" -- to me a picnic means cold chicken or sam'iches, potato salad and the like, toted outside in a picnic basket. I love grilling at home; picnicking away from home.

2. The park/ the lake/ the beach or staying at home simply being?
I like being home (either one) for the holidays.

3. Fireworks- love 'em or hate 'em?
I enjoy them. The dogs, not so much.

4. Parades- have you ever taken part- share a memory...
Being in a parade is really not an item on my personal bucket list. Although I am looking forward to watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade this year right in NYC...booyah!

5. Time for a musical interlude- if you could sum up holidays in a piece of music what would it be?
Oh, that's got to be "Stars and Stripes Forever."

Wow, that's a gorgeous quilt!

Southern born as I am, I did comment on the "barbeque" issue at my place!

Your first answer was right on the money!!!! Cooking hotdogs... burgers... steaks... chicken breast... that's cooking out or grilling! I'm like you a picnic is all about the travel and cold food.

My dogs freaked last night for 4 hours because of the fireworks.
