Independence Day 2019 2


On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress declared the 13 Colonies’ independence from Great Britain and birthed a new nation. We celebrate every year with cookouts, picnics, fireworks, and days off work.

Speaking of days off work, our office hours will be reduced this week.

On July 3, 2019, MMS will close early. However, we will ship all orders placed by 8 a.m. MST, so get those orders in early!
We will be closed July 4-5, 2019.

What is your favorite Independence Day tradition?

In the parts of Alaska where it does not get dark at all this time of year, fireworks are not the big event they are in the rest of the U.S. We tend to focus our celebrations around the solstice, which is June 21. However, we still enjoy cookouts and other outdoor gatherings. We have a friend whose legendary Fourth of July party in the pasture includes firing a 50mm cannon and paddling around a gravel pit pond.

Whatever you do to celebrate, please be safe, and remember with gratitude those brave colonists who began the United States of America, our home.

About Denise

I'm a crazy goat lady who got into making my own soap with goat milk, found MMS to order supplies, and now I get to combine my love of creating skin care products with a job to pay the feed bill. I live in Alaska and greatly enjoy the unique aspects of my northern home - summer days when it never gets dark and the Northern Lights dancing above in winter. Favorite scents include Wild Mint and Ivy, Rhubarb & Sugar Cane, and Eucalyptus Spearmint.
