Did you remember that today is Flag Day?
I thought it might have slipped your mind, so I’ve decided to dedicate this week’s advice column to Flag Day.
It’s not one of the more popular Holidays out there, and I don’t think I’ve ever received a Happy Flag Day card, or been invited to a Flag Day Fiesta, but it’s still a very patriotic day. Who among us doesn’t love a little patriotism?
I advise you to let your American Flag fly!
What better way to honor the Holiday than by putting the Stars & Stripes out on display for all to see?
From my spot on the front porch of The House on the Hill, I can see three American Flags proudly flying in the morning breeze. You know what? It’s an awesome view.
Once you get your flag out there, you might want to try a few more things to get in the spirit of Flag Day. Perhaps you could post a photo of your flag on your Facebook page or tweet one to all your Twitter followers.
Why not organize a game of Flag Football? After the game, you could flag down a taxi and head to a local pub where you can buy a flag a drink.
If there’s construction going on in your neighborhood, track down the flagger in the crew and wish that person a Happy Flag Day.
Do you see how easy it is? Now get out there and have a great Flag Day.
To help put you even more in the Flag Day spirit, I am adding some photos at the end of this letter.
Happy Flag Day!
This is a shot of the flag that hangs from the porch of The House on the Hill.
Here is a shot of my flag and my neighbors’ flag. Theirs is a little difficult to see because of the porch roof, but if you look closely enough, you will find Old Glory.
Here is my flag and Janine’s flag. I told you this was a patriotic neighborhood!
After my Flag Day run, I was lucky enough to get my flag to pose for a selfie with me. That was pretty cool considering it is the flag’s big day. I love meeting celebrities!
Thanks. Happy Flag Day!
Love the selfie!!! Love the post!!!
Thanks! Happy Flag Day!
Now you see it’s different this side of the pond. If we stick flags up we get tutted at – colonialism and all that. Can’t be too patriotic over here so I have flag envy. Happy Flag Day to you!
Any time you want to come over and help me raise my flag, just let me know… 🙂
Flag envy, I’m going to have to remember that phrase!
What a wonderful flag we have, I know it loves to wave at the camera! Happy Flag Day to you, I will have to lift my glass in celebration a little later in the day!
Excellent news! 🙂
Happy flag day!
Thanks, Hollie. Same to you!
That’s some pole…your flag is flying on.
Yes, here in Canada our flag is a tad less inspiring, you’ve got the stars and the stripes, we’ve got a maple leaf and two red rectangles. I definitely have Flag Envy.
Happy Flag Day!
Happy Flag Day. I hope a giant rake doesn’t attack your flag! 😛
I think something is, it’s a disguised rake. 😉
It’s also my dad’s 85th birthday. He’s always said the flags go out for his celebration.
Happy Birthday to your Dad!
Strangely enough, I remember your flag day post from a year ago! You are far more patriotic than I, my friend 🙂 Nonetheless, HAPPY FLAG DAY!
I’m touched that last year’s post made such an impression on you. Happy Flag Day!
I love the patriotism! I’m not an American but I’m sporting red, white and blue nails today, so that counts for something. Happy Flag Day!
It certainly counts, pretty blogger in glasses! Happy Flag Day! 🙂
Happy Flag Day and thank you for your post! We raised Old Glory this morning and noticed something sad. We moved into this newly built neighborhood of 88 homes 15 years ago and almost every home raised a flag on every patriotic holiday. Sadly, only one other neighbor put out their flag today!The neighborhood has changed…gotten younger and it saddens me that so few flags fly here anymore. We will proudly continue to raise ours and be thankful we live in a country that is free (at least so far) and now I’m off to find and read your post from last year.
Please refer your slacker neighbors to my blog post. That will teach them proper Flag Day etiquette! 🙂
