I don’t know why, but fireworks were never that much fun for me. I never wanted to set them, because all I could think of was explosions. Sitting and watching them was even less fun. After the first three or four kabooms, the thrill was gone.
This year, we kept it simple and “safe” with sparklers. The children had a blast. I even purchased enough, so they can have some sparkler fun after holiday. It was and continues to be a thrill for them.
