  • They can be very pretty but overall, I think they are a waste and blown out of proportion in importance.

  • Personally, I don't think they're for home use, as they are just too dangerous. When I was a firefighter, you wouldn't believe how many calls we went on because dumb & dumber blew off an apendage while playing with fireworks. Then there are the children who get burned b/c mom & dad let junior get too close. And lets not forget the number of brush fires & house fires we had to put out from the burning embers that were blown everywhere by the wind.

    Be safe people! Save your money and watch the professionals set off the fireworks.

  • I Love to go and see them once a year. More so if possible. I think they're a great part of enjoying this holiday. Every year I'm grateful if I can go and have the blessing of sight to be able to see and Enjoy them. How fun it is to see small children ooohh & ahh over them & get so excited! Even babies that can't talk. How excited they get & kick their Feet. I hope I'm well enough to go this year. Have Fun everyone Be Safe!

  • I am not a fan of fire works. Though I will watch what is already being done, I just don't like the aftermath nor will i go and buy and light them myself.. the air is disgusting afterward and a lot of stray animals get terrified.. so.. fourth of July is bittersweet to me..

  • I love to watch them, but I just see money burning when we light them..lol

    We only get about 10 dollars worth and then go see the BIG show...but my neighbors spend ALOT of money on them every year, so we just sit in our drive way and watch them too!
