    It's not everyday that you get to see fireworks

    I think for a lot of people, it's because when they were kids, they were so astonished by them.  They didn't get to see them often, and so when they did, they loved them.  Then, as you get older, you may not be quite as excited about seeing fireworks, but it's one of those things that brings you back to your childhood and makes you feel young again.

    I absolutely hate fireworks. They are noisy and dangerous. I hate what it does to the wildlife. We have a family of foxes who live in the stump of a tree at the bottom of the garden. When the fireworks go off the poor foxes are terrified. My friend keeps horses and they run around fearing for their lives when they go off. It used to only be that fireworks in the uk went off on November 5th, but it seems to be now a monthly occurence for something. Some people here even have them at birthday parties. I just feel for the poor animals who are half scared to death. I wish they would be banned.

    They like to say "ohh" and "awww" out loud with other people and not get shhhh-ed.

    They remind me of my childhood.  Every New Year's or 4th of July, we would light fireworks at our house and play with sparklers to celebrate.  We never went anywhere to watch the pros shoot them off...we would just enjoy our own little show at home.

    I can't lie. I enjoy seeing them, but I hate the ones that just make noises. There has to be some kind of color involved to really make me get excited about them. We just went to a fireworks show the other day at the lake around here, and it was really cool to see the different types that were going off.

    The downside is that they tend to leave a lot of trash around after they blow up. Good luck being able to track all that down after the show. Not to mention, they can be a bit dangerous in the wrong hands.

    It's the thrill of blowing something up, without the stupid cops, asking all kinds of questions, like why did your neighbors car blow up, and why is there wires leading to an explosives plunger in your driveway.
