Fireworks on the 4th of July? YES!!
We do have fireworks on the 4th of July!!!!!!!
The letter that helped start the tradition is saying.... "The day will be most memorable 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 solemnized with pomp and parade, bonfires and illuminations (fireworks) from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."
So wrote John Adams on July 3, 1776 to his wife after the Continental Congress had decided to proclaim the American colonies independent of England. Fireworks were associated with Independence Day celebrations even before the signing of the Declaration of independence.
Thats Why WE have fireworks on the fourth of July!!!
By the time of the American Revolution, fireworks had long played a part in celebrating important events. It was natural, then, that not only John Adams but also many of his countrymen should think of fireworks when independence was declared. The very first celebration of Independence Day was in 1777, six years before Americans knew whether the new nation would even survive the war, and fireworks were a part of the revels. In 1789, George Washington's inauguration was accompanied by a beautiful display. After that there was more events and then it became a national tradition in the U.S.A. and many other states and countries. Thats Why We Have Fireworks On The Fourth Of July!!!!
