Should we use fireworks to celebrate the "birth" of a nation?

Well I would like to use fireworks whenever I wanna tbh.
Idky but I feel like I'd feel I'd be more motivated to do chores & stuff if someone set off fireworks every time I finished them.

"Mom I cleaned the dishes"
*mom sets off fireworks in celebration of me doing the dishes*


Random story I feel like adding:
You know those little things you throw on the ground and they would make a loud popping noise when they do?

Well I ordered some just bc one day & brought them to school.
I randomly threw one every now & then throughout the day. Nobody knew it was doing it.
I got caught though and was suspended for a day. :/

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

That's how things are done in Norway, mofo.

Looks like California, 12 months out of the year.

Absolutely, yes we should. There is deep meaning behind it, and it has been a tradition for well over two hundred years. Read this to learn about it.

After voting for independence, Congress turned its attention to the Declaration of Independence, a statement explaining this decision, which had been prepared by a Committee of Five, with Thomas Jefferson as its principal author. Congress debated and revised the wording of the Declaration, finally approving it on July 4. A day earlier, John Adams had written to his wife Abigail:

The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations (illuminations = fireworks), from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.

Adams's prediction was off by two days.

Now you see why we always have parades and barbeques and have fireworks on the 4th of July (Not on the 2nd. Sorry John Adams).
