I feel like I am the odd man out in that I really don't like fireworks! I know it is very not 'MURICA! of me.

Remember that firework that went up into the sky and blew up loudly into some colors? Me too, it is called all of them I wish I could appreciate them more, I just can't get into them.

Hahaha, this seriously was my thoughts for a long time, then I became a chemist and learned what made the different colors, so now I really enjoy them!

It is funny, when I first saw this post, I thought it was some complaint that the fireworks in the Cartel Market weren't up to snuff. Glad to see it was RL complaints, which are probably true.

Not one for doing fireworks personally, but I do like watching them.

You need to light them while you're holding them and point them at people... Much more fun

Chasing people around with large lit fountains is pretty damn entertaining.

Hey Eric, have you ever seen Disneyland fireworks show? They're definitely something special. Especially the Christmas shows.

I agree with the OP that the "safe" fireworks you can buy at the stands are getting worse and worse. When I was a kid, we had the cool sparklers with the metal stick that could burn your hands off and the Snakes that actually lasted a long time (and permanently burned black spots into the sidewalk). Also the Piccalo Peets that you could modify to shoot up into the sky and land on people's roofs. I miss those days.

You just reminded me of why I probably don't care about fireworks. I worked at Disneyland for 6 years during school and the only thing that excites me about the Disneyland firework show now is that the lines for the rides get shorter.

Guess it depends on the person. My fiance worked at Disneyland for several years and he still enjoys going there and seeing the fireworks.
