How much do you spend on fireworks?

Understand that my children are not that in to it, a few sparklers and snakes and they are happy.
Husband says $200, I said that is my car payment. LOL

  • yeah... NOTHING!!! Might as well light the money on fire! Not to mention they are illegal in this state...

  • We don't. They're illegal here, and with all the wildfires lately, private citizens have been a lot more willing to call in those who still insist on shooting them off. The town puts on a nice display, and that's plenty. Even before it got so dry, I didn't ever want fireworks at my house. Maybe it's because I can't see, but I have an almost phobic fear of stray sparks and flames. Besides that, you read every year about people, mostly kids with no supervision and grown men who should know better, blinding themselves or blowing off hands and finger by not understanding the dangers and using fireworks improperly. Firecrackers scare my pets and make noise, and I'd be glad if they all disappeared from the earth. Okay, Debbie Downer will go away now.

  • SS spent 180 last weekend. We spent 12 today on sparklers, snakes and these weirdly chickens that supposedly poop fire. Lol. That's it.

  • Pooping chickens sound awesome! I've always liked the twirlers best, the kind you can nail to a fence post and watch spin as it goes off. I think they might be called roses? Either way, California is a safe & sane state.
