Every year America gathers to celebrate July 4, a day where Taylor Swift invites her squad over and has a gloriously Instagrammable party. Oh and also something about Independence.
Usually, the 4th is celebrated with a lavish party complete with gigantic inflatable slide and a ton of well coordinated, tailored social media spamming of everyone invited. In the past there's been matching onesies...
...and even a terrified Ryan Reynolds.
Taylor's 2016 party was somewhat overwhelmingly focused on her relationship with Tom Hiddleston, during the celebrations the Loki actor was seen sporting a "I <3 TS" tank top as the pair frolicked in the ocean.
Since the Hiddleston situation cooled off, and Taylor's clashes with every single Kardashian, she's had a very low-key 2017. There are also rumours of a new beau Joe Alwyn, and many were expecting Tay to debut this newish relationship at her festival of America on the 4th.
Alas, the holiday came around... and Taylor was no where to be found.

Anyone else concerned Taylor Swift didn't have a 4th of July party or no just me— Jackie Augustus (@JackieAugustus) July 5, 2017
The Statue of Liberty is probably crying because she literally has no iconic photos of Taylor Swift in front of fireworks to look at right now.

Here's hoping Tay doesn't decide to cancel Christmas this year too.
