Grant Schneider hi Grant... same here.... some of those numbers are just mind-boggling. I had no idea this was the #1 beer consuming holiday... I'd have expected it of hot dogs and watermelon.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 hi Sheila... I always find figures like this fascinating and fun to read. It's been very, very quiet in my neighborhood the past couple days... I think lots of people have left town for the weekend.

Nina these are all new facts for me.  I would have expected the percent of Americans attending 4th of July picnics today to be higher.

George Souto hi George... maybe it's in how one defines a picnic! In any case, I always find numbers like this fun to read.

Hi Nina- interesting facts/stats/ and figures for this holiday. We'll be watching fireworks on PBS tonight. I also hope our neighbors will as well since we are in dire need of rain here.

Kathy Streib hi Kathy... I always love numbers like this... and WalletHub seems to come up with great infographics each year. We are not in drought status, but we sure could use some rain to cool things off... they keep promising, but so far no go.

Hi Nina,

Wow!  I think that is the most comprehensive list I have ever seen.  How did you get the graphics to travel that far down the page?

One more fact or rumor.  It is rumored that John Hancock signed his name so large so that the king would not have to get his spectacles to read it. Is this true?  Only John Hancock knows for sure!! Happy 4th!

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® it's the code for the graphic that I entered to get it all on the page that way. 

Apparently, John Hancock signed his name so big so that "the fat, old king George" could read it without his spectacles. True or not, I like the folklore.

Trust you've enjoyed your Independence Day!

Nina such a fun post, funny in our home all we do is drink wine or bubbly, but I always have about a six pack of Pielsner Urquell ready  for those who consume beer. Today we had one of our guest and yes she is one of those beer drinking statistics, Endre
