I’ve been single for [insert any amount of time here that is longer than that],” and “Holy serial monogamist.” The first point I’d fight you on. The second one, not so much.
Festivals, fireworks, a surplus in hot dog sales, and a whole lot of red, white, and blue everywhere are just a few of the tried and true elements that make up the Fourth of July.

In the U.S., the historical significance of May 5 has been largely passed over in favor of a massive spike in beer sales (in fact, in 2014, more beer was sold on Cinco de Mayo than on Super Bowl Sunday or St. Patrick's Day!), and it's time to set the record straight.
We know we've given some brief insight into what glamping is before, but it's time to dig deep. We're also guessing that by now you all probably know that you can opt for a tree house or a luxury tent instead of a night on the ground in a sleeping bag—so it's time to go back to the source, as far back in time as we can, to when people were glamping before they even had a word for it.
