The 4th of July is a celebration for many.
And it seems that a lot of Americans love to celebrate it. I am not saying there is anything wrong with it, after all, every country has holidays celebrating their country so I wholly understand. However, there are a lot of stereotypes that come along whenever you mention America. From Hillbilies with beer guts to many people proudly waving their flag wherever they go. Again, there is nothing wrong with either of those things but when you think of America, that is what comes to mind.
Well, some Polish people took advantage of these American stereotypes and decided to cosplay them. I am pretty sure that it was all done in fun and they never meant to be offensive. This celebration is done on the 4th of July and a lot of people join in with their own interpretations. It is officially called the 4th of July larping and the pictures are pretty interesting. So that is why we decided to pick some of the most interesting pictures for you to see.

This is what the Facebook group behind this had to say about the start of this larping celebration.
LARP 4th of July is a drama about the wasted American dream. It is a story about hope, about a small homeland, about finding one’s place in the community. More than 200 years later, many Americans are living under different conditions than the nation’s founding fathers imagined. Barely making ends meet, they strive to be family members and worthy Americans, despite poverty and exclusion. Though they live on the margins of society, their home—a small town cluttered with caravans and windswept cabins—is for them the essence of ‘the land of the free and the home of the brave.’
