It’s the 4th of July today and we’re sure everyone’ll be celebrating Independence Day with the same time-tested recipe — cookouts and fireworks. This year, once again, we’ve heard tell of our friends and neighbors’ planned displays. In truth, sometimes it’s quite scary but just keep a few things in mind on our shared day of explosives and fun.
If you plan to light up the backyard and show the neighborhood what you got, send us some pics of your ostentatious display, especially if it lights the field next door on fire. Those are always the best stories.
In all seriousness we highly recommend that you check your local laws, understand the safety guidelines for the fireworks you buy, and learn how to properly dispose of them after firing. It was much less complicated when we were kids — light it, watch it explode, run away.
