There haven't been any around here at all yet. Usually there's a fair amount of fireworks let loose in the couple of days before July 4, and on the 4th itself the noise usually starts around 6PM.
But as I write this it's 8 and I haven't heard a single pop, boom, whistle or snap. I wonder why?
Ha! I just heard one! My faith in my neighbors is restored.

OK, they're going strong out there now.
The Brits and the Americans each have one day a year in which they go out and blow off fireworks, and both of them celebrate revolutions.
Ours is the American Revolution, needless to say. We're commemorating the Revolutionary War.
Theirs is Guy Fawkes day, commemorating a failed revolution, named after a traitor.
So we Americans celebrate success. And the crazy Brits celebrate failure.
