So I've been gone pretty much all weekend & while driving home yesterday in another city (& county), my BF & I passed by a few of those fireworks stands. We even stopped to take a look & were so tempted to buy some! I still see a few types that I remember when I was a child. I haven't lit fireworks since I was a child & every 4th of July, my parents would buy me a box of them & we'd enjoy them at one of the parks. But, fireworks aren't allowed in my current city, so my BF & I knew that even if we bought them, we'd have to drive far just to light them. Oh well, maybe one of these years, we'll do it! Ironically, I don't care for going to a stadium, etc. to watch the professional ones from afar. Does your city allow them? Do you prefer to light them yourself or watch them at a show? In my city, at the community college, they do have a fireworks show.
