In our part of the woods, you can set off fireworks 3 days before and after New Years, 4th of July, Pioneer Day and Chinese New Year.
We always do the 4th, but not the others... mostly because... who cares about the others.
Luckily, this year, we had all of the girls and the boy with us. No one was working. We did our fireworks on the 3rd so that we could go to the big show on the 4th.
