Actually, I am scared of them. Many years ago when I was a little girl I saw something that scarred my brain forever. We were at a park with family friends. One of the boys had fireworks, held it in his hand too long and it blew a hole in his chest. I was right there. Ever since that time, I don't want to be around them. Many celebrations happen around our part of the country on July 4th, Independence Day. I will go to a park where professionals light the fireworks and we are at a distance. Guess I could call myself a "chicken" when it comes to lighting them and being fairly close to the person(s) lighting fireworks.
