Why do I like fireworks?

Aside from them being bright and shiny and a great chance to get in touch with your inner pyromaniac, I mean.

It’s simple: I like them because they are made of gunpowder and, most of the time, gunpowder is used in weapons.  That’s it’s purpose.  We use it to kill and destroy.  But one day a year we take this weapon, pack it in a cardboard tube with metal shavings and a fuse, and make it into a toy.  We beat our swords into ploughshares and make our gunpowder into fireworks.

Have fun and be safe, everyone.
