Five Fun Facts About The 4th of July

Independence Day

Two hundred forty years ago the thirteen American colonies declared their independence from the British Empire. The United States of America was declared a new nation independent of their former rulers. 

Independence Day, more commonly known as the 4th of July, is now a national holiday. Ask any elementary school student what Independence day commemorates, and you'll receive an accurate response, but ask many adults and often you will find very ambiguous or even incorrect answers.

While we celebrate with firework displays, parades, barbecues, picnics, and family reunions, it's important to remember why we celebrate in the first place. 

Here are five fun facts regarding the 4th of July

1. Most historians believe that the Declaration of Independence was not actually signed on July 4, 1776. Most of the signers penned their name on August 2, 1776.

2. John Adams and Thomas Jefferson were the only two signers to later serve as presidents of the Unites Sates.

3. John Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died on the same day, July 4, 1826, the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. 

4. Calvin Coolidge is the only president to be born on the 4th of July.

5. The population of the United States in 1776 was 2.5 million compared to almost 324 million today.

Bring Our Daughters and Sons To Work Day Features Amazing Los Angeles Magician

Bring Our Daughters and Sons To Work Day occurs on the fourth Thursday of April every year. and encourages parents to take their children to work for one day. Originally the day started as Take Your Daughters To Work Day in 1993 and was expanded to include boys in 2003.

This year I was the featured magician hired to entertain the sons and daughters of the employees for the very prestigious Latham & Watkins law firm in Downtown Los Angeles. The day consisted of two separate magic shows. The first show was for kids ranging in age from 4 to 7 years old, and the second show was for kids aged 8 to 17 years. 

It was a great day to share a bit of magic and the kids had a great time. I'm grateful for the opportunity to entertain all the kids, and I hope to be invited back next year!

Six Shows In Two Days For Sunshine Day Camp

Last week I had the pleasure of performing six shows in two days at six locations in Santa Clarita, CA for Sunshine Day Camps. Each location consisted of 30 to 80 kids, and the directors and counselors at each camp really did a great job of engaging the kids, keeping things in order, and creating a fun atmosphere for all the summer campers.

Is Your Entertainer Insured?

The business of entertaining children is a fun and rewarding business, and it seems as if everyone starting out as a magician gets involved at some point in entertaining kids at birthday parties. Although it's a fun business, it's still a business, and every entertainer should have liability insurance. Liability insurance covers any spectator or member of the public that may suffer a loss or injury as a result of the magic performance. Always ask if your magician carries liability insurance. If he or she doesn't, I'd steer clear.

Although it's highly unlikely that anything would happen, wouldn't you want to know that your magician carries insurance in the unlikely event of an accident? I carry a $3,000,000 insurance policy that covers me and any member of my audience, so you can rest assured you're in good hands.  Liability insurance is good business.
