A pathetic modern easy way to have a public celebration.
Just like TV. Everybody can watch, instead of the community actually turning something on themselves.
Ubiquitous, tired and now just plain boring. And a culture killer.
Some of the crucial chemicals in fireworks are licensed in the west solely for use in fireworks, on the basis that they are still highly toxic but irreplaceable if you want big bright bangs for your buck.
Look for that stuff spread out all around your gardens, natural environment and school playgrounds. Sometimes breathable, sometimes in nuggets.
They terrify and send into a blind panic not only dogs. Those earth shifting, mortar-like booming thuds cause real tragedies for birds and other wildlife too. Usually totally undetected,
Parades, feasts, public parties, concerts, wild pagan bacchanalias of writhing naked bodies. Anything.
-but fireworks resemble culture, about the same way a hooker's bj resembles real sex - ie, not the real thing at all.
IMO only, and i know some of you are going to call me a ratbag greenie Grinch, trying to steal Christmas from the kids and their grandparents
- but maybe we could turn on real live spectacles instead, just like did before - when we called it "culture"
Don't move to China.
