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!
