when I was growing up it was all illegal: sparklers, firecrackers, all of it. people went to their city’s firework display, it went on ONE night and that it was it.
now, everywhere I’ve lived in the last 10 years people can buy all sorts of fireworks and set them off for 10 days or so. I load up on Valium for my dog and forget trying to get enough sleep.
is there anywhere they remain largely something you go to for one night - rather than this on-going spend fest for everyone? damn, the money involved - that would keep me up nights if the noise didn’t.
