Do They Have the 4th of July in Chicago?

Bizarrely, it seems I'm the only one of my friends who isn't going to DC for the 4th of July. Despite the fact that I, unlike they, hail from that region of the globe.

Chicago is a weird place -- it has it's fireworks on the 3rd instead of the 4th. But some of Jill and my college friend will be coming over for the weekend, so we won't be lonely.

I was always told Chicago has fireworks on the 3rd to avoid paying holiday pay to all the (union) city employees who have to be out for the fireworks to happen and happen safely.
