75 Star-Spangled Statements

From Shoes to Tattoos, These Innovations Will Ring in the 4th of July

— June 30, 2011 — Fashion
With the 4th of July fast approaching, patriotism is at its peak! The 4th of July is an iconic celebration of the founding of the United States, where the celebration does not stop at singing the national anthem. Elaborate fireworks displays, family reunions and all-night parties are staples at this time of year. But the biggest sign of Independence Day? A country decked out in red, white and blue, from billboards to costumes, accessories, magazine covers, and even home decor, the nation's colors and flag are everywhere!

Implications - Holidays, especially national ones, are a particularly fruitful time for businesses across many industries who capitalize on the drive towards excessive consumption that these celebrations inspire. Consumers everywhere are investing in party favors and decor, novelty gifts, and virtually anything that will enhance the holiday experience for them and their loved ones.
