Let the Fireworks Begin
The 4th of July is coming up and I’m excited to see what kind of fireworks there are (and not the kind you might expect in a drunken brawl, thank you very much). Fireworks date back to the 600′s in China and area almost always used in celebrations and you know how I love a good celebration.
The things fireworks look like – the colors, shapes, etc. which some people have been known to see when they’ve had a bit too much to drink – just keep getting better and better. The largest display so far was in Portugal on New Year’s Eve in 2006. It used 66,326 pieces in it’s display. And the most fireworks shot off in a 30 second timeframe was 125,801, in Cebu, Philippines, on May 8, 2010. That must have been loud.
I personally enjoy the 4th at a backyard BBQ with some ribs, maybe a burger or two and a good red wine being poured. I appreciate the fact that America celebrates its independence, because without it, it’d be hard for me to be here from Chile. So, a toast: To America, To Independence and To a little bit of debauchery.
What was the best fireworks display you’ve ever seen?
