Soaps.com hopes our readers who celebrate the Fourth of July had a wonderful, fun-filled holiday. Soap opera stars took some time off of work to spend with family and friends and shared photos and videos of their holiday celebrations on Instagram. Some celebrated new citizenship, others shared messages of thanks, and various actors enjoyed fireworks, parades and more.
Now that the mid-week break is over, we’re passing on their patriotic posts. Read how a few of the actors captioned their celebrations then scroll through the social media highlights to view photos and videos of all of the documented fun…
The Bold and the Beautiful
Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) posted a sexy shot from a photo shoot and cheered, “Happy 4th of July! Enjoy and be safe. My honey, @dom472522 styled this shot and was my photographer for the day. He is a man of many talents.” Rena Sofer (Quinn) settled in on a blanket with her daughter and a friend to await a fireworks display and said, “#fourthofjuly with @rosabelrosalind @tarastrong fireworks coming soon…” followed by a video of the show.
Days of our Lives
Greg Vaughan (Eric) gave a shout out to veterans and soldiers through a video during a boat ride, “Happy 4th #godblessamerica #veterans #soliders.” Greg Rikaart, who just wrapped up his run as Leo, shared a restaurant receipt with the caption, “My kinda restaurant. Happy 4th of July to the America I love that was founded by and celebrates immigrants,” as head writer Ron Carlivati wished everyone a happy holiday from the Hamptons, “Happy 4th!”
Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) jumped for joy with a special wish, “Happy 4th from our family to yours!” Kathleen Gati (Obrecht) had a message as well, “Happy 4th and Happy Everything to Everyone!”
The Young and the Restless
Beth Maitland (Traci) expressed her pride for America, “Grateful on this day for those I love and all my many freedoms. More important than ever to be committed to this country.” Gina Tognoni (Phyllis) added, “God bless America. I am proud to be an American. I am grateful for those who have fought for our freedom. May Love for ALL ALWAYS prevail. Happy Fourth of July.”
Patriotism is clearly NEVER celebrated in my family????. Happy Fourth of July from my brother and me (and my whole family)! To all who served and who are currently serving thank you! Coming from a family filled with military I know the sacrifice is huge. Thanks for making this country safe and free! We love you! ???? #americanproud #militarylove
Happy 4th of July! Please be safe and celebrate with me, being an American and what that stands for. Let’s remember the Veterans and all of those before us that have made America the land of the free. Let’s remember what being kind and caring for your neighbors means. Patience and understanding goes so far. Stay amazing inside my friends! Make the world better by spreading love. #christophersean #july4th #america #usa #proud #thankyou #amazing #freedom
As we celebrate the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation, I want to thank all of those who are currently serving, I.e. @nate.smith02, have served, and have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect and preserve this amazing country we are so blessed to live in. God bless you all and God bless America!??? #GodblessAmerica #MadeInAmerica #blessed @usarmy
Happy Independence Day!!! ?? #usa #4thofjuly #independenceday #dogsofinstagram #Repost @herodogawards ・・・ July 5th is known as the busiest day of the year at animal shelters due to companion animals anxiously fleeing their homes on July 4th. In preparation for tomorrow's Independence Day holiday, please remember the following tips from @americanhumane on keeping your four-legged family members safe and secure during the festivities: **Your pets won’t enjoy the fireworks display, so leave them at home! Keep them inside, shielded from loud noises. **If loud noises upset your pets, do not leave them alone while you’re out celebrating; make sure someone can stay with them. **If you think your pets should be tranquilized, consult your veterinarian in advance. **Contact an animal behaviorist to work with your pets on their fears. With some positive reinforcement and behavior modification training, by next Independence Day, you all may be worry-free! **Be sure that all ID tags are properly affixed to your pet’s collar and that they have your current contact information, including cell number(s). **Update your microchip registrations and pet license information to ensure its current. From all of us at the Hero Dog Awards (and 2017 Hero Search and Rescue Dog Luca, pictured here), we wish you a safe and celebratory 4th of July!
