How lucky are we to have this warm weather for the 4th of July weekend? No clouds, no rain…What a blessing!
What is on the To Do list for the Independence Day Holiday? Taking advantage of the special holiday sales by going shopping or heading to the parks for an outdoor barbeque with friends and family may be top choices for many.
Many people celebrate the birth of America by lighting fireworks. When I was younger, I remember seeing a spectacular fireworks show. The show was the grand finale of a 4th of July event my family went to which was sponsored by my Dad’s work. Naturally, fireworks shows can not start until the sky is completely dark. On a midsummer evening, the sun doesn’t go down until 9 to 9:30 pm! The starting time for a 4th of July fireworks show is a reminder of the long summer day.
Turn on the TV this time of year and you’ll be sure to hear about rules, regulations, and unfortunately, accidents regarding fireworks. As much as they are fun and traditional, fireworks are equally dangerous. Although they are legal for the individual to purchase, it may be a wiser choice to attend an event where the fireworks are handled by trained people. Hazard prevention is the way to go.
