What’s With the Fireworks?

It’s Halloween night and it sounds like a war zone outside… it has for a few hours now.  I don’t remember Halloween being so heavy on fireworks when I was a kid.  The candy–thanks Eleanor for the KitKat!–and the costumes are the same.  The jack-o-lanterns are pretty much the same and so are the lights except that they’re LED’s.  So, when did people start shooting off fireworks on Halloween night?  Oh wait… I think even the most innocuous fireworks were illegal in the North Carolina of my childhood.

In fact, fireworks, when I was a kid, were reserved especially for the Fourth of July.  I have no recollection of using them to celebrate anything else.  Hmmm…
