Just like cheaper booze, buy them in England!
You climbed on the ladder with the wind in your sails,
You came like a comet blazing your trail

My daughter came round with her 2 grandchildren this evening so they could share their sparklers with me. ;D ;D

We collected Mia from school, yesterday. Had a lovely time, with sparklers after dark.....

Lovely! We used to love sparklers as children - turn all the lights off for best effect

It was a surprise visit Alex and I didn't have a carrot in the house but I did tell them about it so my daughter made note and said she has carrots at home and more sparklers. ;D

It was a long time since I had held a sparkler until tonight and really enjoyed it especially when I was able to show the great grandchildren how to turn circles of fire with the sparklers. ;D ;D

Being a pretentious little swot, I remember waving a couple of sparklers above my head whilst intoning 'Liberté, fraternaté, egalité'

Happy days of sparklers, Catherine wheels and Roman candles, not today's explosive devices.   Lovely photo Dayjo

But there were penny bangers which were pretty loud, and jumping jacks. A couple of the latter and it sounded like the gunfight at the OK Corral!

That is so very true Mike, I think some people forget how loud fireworks used to be or could be, regarding the jumping jacks, some kids used to think it was funny to throw them at other kids and laugh watching them jump out of the way.
