    No, I don't.  I guess I'm afraid I'll lose control over them and burn down someones house or hurt someone.  I do love to watch them though..

    here is our country, we purchase fireworks in black market for a cheap price and let them off in rural areas

    Here in California that simply can't be done. Only 'Safe & Sane' fireworks can be purchased. Cali basically has three categories.

    Safe & Sane Fireworks
    Explosives for Display

    Those are all defined having regulations and there are laws regarding them too. If for instance a Cali person buys fireworks or explosives in Nevada and attempts to cross the state line then at least two laws are broken - Federal and California State, regarding transporting fireworks across state line. BTW four states completely ban fireworks all together. Otherwise it is individual state laws and county regulations pretty much.

    Yes I do.  It's a big tradition in my family. I used to buy my own or pool my money with other family members. It's a little different now because my new husband has a fireworks stand every year in Washington State.  He puts on a show for the whole block after he closes on the 4th.
