    I didn't either. I hid behind the settee and shook, then ran the gauntlet to a pals house for some company.

    In some venues you have to pay, yeah.

    Obviously, you can still see them from a great distance! ... but you'll never get sparks in your hoodie like that...

    Having said that, I did see a lovely display at a funeral a year or two ago. The service was held on a beach on the evening after we'd been to the crematorium, and was topped off with this huge amazing firework display. The fireworks reflected off the sea and with the music playing and the lights and bangs, it was a perfect way to say goodbye.

    Because funerals are normally quiet somber affairs, this made you smile rather than cry because it was so dramatic, noisy and mirrored the emotion of the day so much better than muffled restained sobbing would have done. It also had an element of the ridiculous to it. It was Fucking Beautiful.

    I live up a hill so have had a good couple of days free entertainment,without the added element of danger,from rogue sparklers.
