With the 4th July just around the corner, people across the United States are getting ready to celebrate one of the most important dates on their national calendar. But as you can see from this hilarious list compiled by Bored Panda, some folks take their celebrations a little more seriously than others!

For those of you who don't know, the 4th July is when Americans commemorate their independence from the British Empire on the 4th July 1776, and whether they're mowing the US flag into their lawn or turning watermelons into the star-spangled banner, there seems to be no limit to what they'll do in celebration of this historic event. Scroll down for some examples of people taking 4th July to the next level, and if you have any pictures that you want to share then feel free to add them to the list! Don't forget to vote for your favorite, and happy 4th July everybody!

Well Said! Now all we need is for Nigel Farage to get up and give us a toast for setting an example and getting things started. 👍

You just--randomly have busts of Founding Fathers in your home?! Although we do have busts of Bach & Beethoven in our display cabinet.

Roller derby is a most honourable way of getting bruises, you deserve a 4th of July toast to your health!

I guess I just don't get the hole blowing s**t up thing. But spending $1,500 to do it is crazy to me. Hope the kid in the pic is not the one lighting s**t up.
