Yes, of course! We are a freed people, with writers and artists, doctors and lawyers, good and bad! We are a melting-pot, and I hope we are unified forever! I am from here, that is your culture, you eat my delicacies!!! America is great!...I love fireworks!...Why is America great to you?!
I talked to a friend yesterday (a us soldier) and asked if they were going to be able to light off fireworks where he was in the middle east and he said "nah. but we don't have to. we see the fire works every night."
As a veteran I still have plenty of friends left in and they all say the same thing. The sight of enemy fire exploding in the night aiming for our soldiers combining with return fire is just as impressive now as it was then; the principles behind men and women loyaly fighting for love of country are the same as well.
The fireworks still thrill me like they did as a kid. Family picnics and visits are fun but the fireworks is the best part. (That and the freedom that we're celebrating).
We "observe" many holidays but we "celebrate" the 4th, and that's as it should be IMO.
We had a wonderful fireworks display here. (Just got back from it a short while ago.) It was held at the county fairgrounds - for the first time, I believe - and they had vendors, a live band, a radio station broadcast. It was an exciting time, a real community celebration.
The fireworks display was gorgeous. I'm stunned to see the way they keep changing and tweaking and adding new types of explosions year after year. There is real artistry in each individual explosion and in the entire show as a whole - an exciting blend of art and science.
Do any of you here know anyone who has worked in fireworks design or manufacture?
Happy Fourth (still for the West Coast, anyway) !

What is your favorite Fourth of July Tradition?This is my favorite holiday. I love everything about it. The parade, the lake, bbqing with friends, and the fireworks. But my favorite tradition in it was my grandmas flag cake she use to make. I loved to help her when I was little.
