Itís that time of year again! Less than a week away from the US holiday of Independence Day!

This is probably my favourite holiday behind Christmas, because I love fireworks. I just bought mine the other day, though they are illegal in my state so I have to make the trek to a neighboring state in order to buy them.

I never get the expensive items like the mortars or tubes or repeaters or any of that, I just buy the smaller stuff. I like to get the spinners which make the flower patterns, they are very pretty. The flying items which spin into the air are beautiful as well. My favourite item would probably be roman candles. There is a pretty wide variety of them with different effects and colours, though I go with the more simple ones. Despite the warning label I always hold it in my hand and perform a little dance with it as it shoots.

I canít stand firecrackers, all they do is make a bunch of noise. Anything which whistles is really annoying as well. Everything which just makes noise and is devoid of colour is dull and boring.

I also like fireworks. We're getting close to firework season in Edinburgh... by which I mean the Edinburgh Festival, which ends every night for a fornight with fireworks and on the last Sunday of the Festival we have a huge fireworks display, synched to the Scottish Chamber Orchestra who play underneath Edinburgh Castle.

Here's some photos:

The most visually stunning one (to me anyway) is when they let the fireworks cascade down the walls of the castle so that it looks like a waterfall... of fire. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to photograph very well. Here's the best images I could find:
