These, are NOT fireworks. They are baby fire fizzles? And expensive for something that may or may not even light. Maybe as a kid these would have had me begging mom for a pack, but now, I just get sort of cringe-y about it. I know I am going to sound like Grandpa Simpson, but it is just way too dry around here to be lighting any fireworks. The fire hazards are scary right now.
As a small kid I hated fireworks. The noise drove me bananas - I still don't like the noise, especially when it sounds like a war zone at 3 in the morning, but I do like watching the professional shows, like Disneyland or The Queen Mary.
For awhile I lived in Ohio, like redneck, backwoods, Deliverance, Ohio and out in the middle of nowhere, you could light some very impressive and not very legal? fireworks off in your own backyard! One of them was called the Neighborhood Annoyer and it was basically one big loud BOOM that reverberated into the woods. I liked it. I wish I had several now but not for the holiday - just for having on hand to shut my annoying neighbors up.
I don't have many fond memories of Ohio, but I did like the 4th. The fireflies would come out and land on you while you were out holding sparklers and such. I miss the fireflies the most. I guess they thought I looked like one very big sparkly firefly?
So I guess this is a thing for little kids and people who can light off the impressive and slightly illegal fireworks and the rest of us are stuck praying that the idiots lighting up M80s aren't going to land it on the roof. Happy 4th ;)
