If there's one holiday that Southerners take seriously—other than Christmas—it's the Fourth of July. Independence Day is filled with barbecues, fireworks, apple pie, and patriotism. We throw some hotdogs on the grill, maybe crack open an American brew, and shoot our appreciation for the U.S.A. up to the heavens with fireworks bought from a shack on the side of the road. (Bonus points if the shack had boiled peanuts too.) And we love to document our celebrations for posterity—just as our forefathers would. This year, make your social media post one for the history books with these festive, funny, and sentimental Fourth of July Instagram captions. If your patriotic heart bleeds red, white, and blue all year long, there's no better way to show it than with these captions just made for the Fourth of July. When in doubt, sprinkle in an American flag emoji or two—and you're set.
