There is nothing that feels more patriotic than driving through a neighborhood decorated with the red, white and blue.
Rather than just placing a flag on the mailbox why not make a family project out of the construction of a flagpole in your yard? While that may seem a bit much, imagine your kids raising and lowering the flag on a daily basis. This simple act will instill patriotism, responsibility and respect for our flag and our nation.
A house-mounted flag is no less patriotic but certainly less work. You can maximize the time spent mounting the flag holder by talking about the history of our flag and what being an American means to you.
