Happy Birthday, ‘Merica!

Happy Birthday, ‘Merica!

Let’s put the ‘unite’ in United States for the 4th of July this year. From sea to shining sea, we’ve rounded up some of the strangest, supersized “facts” about the country you love like no other.

The places, people and legends of the United States are as varied as the 50 states themselves. While the following anecdotes are only bits and pieces of American culture, they do a pretty good job of celebrating what some might call, The Greatest Nation. Sit back, relax and unleash your inner patriot in time for Independence Day.

1.Paul Bunyan 2020

This mythical giant is said to have roamed the woods with his sidekick Babe the Blue Ox. With his knack for logging, you’ll find many larger than life statues of Paul Bunyan in the Midwest. This homegrown hero is only rivaled by the legendary (and very real) Johnny Appleseed. Now you too can take part in this urban legend and create a custom T-shirt featuring P. Bunyan.

2. California

The flag for the California Republic graces hip T-shirts and chill dorm room walls throughout the world. What was once widely known as the Grizzly Bear State is now called the Golden State. They changed the name after we hunted bears to extinction. As they say, go big or go home!

3. Are you fluent in Burger?

Did you know the United States has the largest variety of hamburgers in the world? If you speak fluent burger, you can probably name a few dozen specimens. From the humble slider to the butter burger to the Jucy Lucy—your 4th of July cookout can be a cholesterol jamboree!

4. Mount Rushmore

Visiting one of the many incredible National Parks in the United States is a popular activity for holidays like the 4th of July or Memorial Day. Take your kids to Mount Rushmore this year, the only place in the U.S. where you can see four giant heads of former presidents carved into the side of a mountain. Better yet, if your kids have their sights set on being president someday—show them the glory they have to look forward to! Make it an occasion to remember with custom 4th of July T-shirts, a wearable souvenir your kids will love for years to come.

5. The ultimate firework

Yellowstone National Park is home to the one and only Supervolcano! If you’re a fan of fireworks and explosions, the Supervolcano is a must-see this holiday weekend. We might have laws against possession of certain fireworks, but nothing will stop this spectacular display.

6. Last but not least, Texas

It’s larger than any country in Western Europe. ‘nuff said!

Feeling inspired? Celebrate Independence Day with custom patriotic apparel. The 4th of July will look great on you. Stay safe and have a fun 4th!
