The fireworks stands/tents are popping like weeds. It’s that time of year again. I noticed one had a sign saying it will open on the 20th so I expect I’ll soon be hearing firecrackers going off after dark.
I wonder what is the appeal of fireworks. Is it the bright patterns they make against a dark sky? Is it the noise a string of small firecrackers make as they pop-pop-pop? Is it the attraction of a seasonal treat?
