Are These Real or Fake Firework Names?
Growing up I was never allowed to play with fireworks, so it's no surprise that I didn't know that some of the products had REALLY unique names!
I think it may have been one of my dad's cousins that lit her hair on fire with a sparkler when they were younger, but I can't remember the entire story. All I know is that whichever one of my dad's relatives had the unfortunate run-in with the sparkler is the reason why my sister and I weren't allowed to play with them...or be around any neighborhood fireworks displays. As an adult, I've never really felt compelled to get into them so I've never visited a fireworks stand before.
I didn't realize how wacky the names of fireworks and fireworks arrangements were until a family who's running a stand in Nampa this summer started telling me about them during Boise Music Festival!
