Fireworks are a big deal. If you don't know this, or you have any disagreement with this, look at all of the fireworks we Texans shoot off during the year. We had fireworks going off like crazy this past weekend for July 4th celebrations. As I said, fireworks are a big deal.

But my question is this: What are your thoughts on fireworks when it's NOT a holiday? According to the Texas Department of Insurance website, in Texas, we can buy and sell fireworks for July 4th, Christmas/New Years (these two are so close together that retailers don't have to close between the two holidays), Texas Independence Day, San Jacinto Day and Memorial Day. I realize that for the holidays other than July 4th and New Years, fireworks aren't as big of a deal, but they're still allowed to be sold.

That about does it for the selling side of things...Now, I'm talking about shooting off fireworks. Are you one of those people that will use any excuse to light up a few fireworks, or are you one of those people that believes that fireworks are ONLY for the holidays mentioned above.

In my opinion, I'm all about fireworks. I always have been. I wasn't one that considered fireworks were one for one or two days out of the year. If I had the resources, and I knew it was alright with everyone around me, I probably would've been setting them off 365 days a year.

What are your thoughts on all of this? Are you a fan of year-round fireworks, or just a holiday fireworks person? Is it weird to set off fireworks on days that aren't holidays? Let us know in the comments below!
