With the fact that 2 countries celebrated their "birth" this month and that now we are coming close to the end of this patriotic month, I was wondering if we should use fireworks to show off our national spirit.

I don't think we should because:

1) It doesn't benefit anyone (i.e for survival)
2) It pollutes the air
3) It's money spent that could go to better things (helping the poor, feeding the starving, infrastructure, etc.)
AND FINALLY
4) It's really annoying (in terms of sound and based on personal opinion. I said " i don't THINK" so this is opinionated)

I was also wondering why we use fireworks to celebrate this holiday. Other things could work just as well so I don't see why we still use fireworks.

I want to hear your thoughts!

Yes

1) Cause its awesome.
2) I like watching explosions
3) And its the perfect situtation to friendzone or be friendzoned (every anime ever)

yeah because, lets eliminate fun because a few people dont like it.

I personally hate fireworks but im glad they are enjoyed by other people; I think they should be used since they bring a bit of joy to people in this joyless world.

It's provides people with jobs there's a plus
It's interesting to look at, watching something burst momentarily and then disappear just like that is quite the sight.

As for why we use fireworks? that's a good question I would also like to know.

I like them, and see where your coming from but you could say this about a lot of other things we do that are kinda pointless. Why pick on the fireworks they just want to blow up and stuff.

exactly well except maybe 3 haha

though i read one time about a soldier who'd fought in the middle east who was really bothered by fireworks because he had PTSD from war and the explosions reminded him of when he was in battle... i can understand and sympathize with that but, the reasons mentioned by OP? nah

I like fireworks people only use them once in a blue moon so I don't mind.

Where I live, people get carried away and think the 4th of July lasts half a month. It's extremely annoying. My neighbors keep getting even more fireworks every year and don't stop until they've used up all of them, only to buy twice as much the next year.

I don't mind having one night of fireworks every once in a while for special occasions, but people should really learn to have some self control. Also, I don't really understand the significance of using fireworks to celebrate the founding of a nation. It's just overly patriotic people trying to feel special by putting on a light show for the whole neighborhood.

Well, that got dark quickly. I wasn't saying i didn't enjoy them, I was asking if and why we should use fireworks.

We do large firework shows here all the time. I'm sorry if you live in a joyless area that doesn't.

1812 Overture is always the best for this.

I'm always upset that they never let us do a "mad minute" with black powder cannons. Sure it's a bit risky, but we had a full (enough) crew.

You think fireworks are something to think about? Look at this:
