Americans ... or anyone who has an "independence day" celebration ... what is the most you have spent on a celebration? I can easily spend $1000 on a fireworks display. I even just bought a "professional" remote triggering system. LOL

I'm coming to your house for July 4th, sounds like you have one heck of a fireworks display.

The day of my divorce paper signing was my "personal Independence Day" and it cost me high 6 figures, a property deed, a ton of lawyer fees but the feeling afterwards was "priceless".

lol ... I'm glad my divorce was amicable - and we were too poor to have anything worth fighting over, anyway.

She got the money and the vacation home, I got the kids. I came out on top of that deal, wouldn't change a thing.

I wish we could have real fireworks but we live in a "sparkles only" state" with tough enforcement.  We usually have a family Bar-B-Q and invite some friends a real laid back get together.

When I was growing up ... WA was a "sparkles only" state, and you had to cross into OR for the "good" fireworks. Now it's reversed. lol

Personally, I think fireworks should be covered under either the 1st or 2nd Amendments. HA!

We don't spend much on Independence Day.  We go to free fireworks displays and just have a picnic or small party to celebrate.  It's about celebrating freedom.  Our ancestors paid a much higher price than we ever could for those rights.

I've noticed "free" fireworks displays are getting smaller each year. They're now paid for by selling buttons or whatever, and if people don't buy them - there's no money for the display. Kinda sad, IMO.

I usually don't pay too much. It's the guys I know that like to blow things up so they are in charge of the explosive festivities, lol. I make sure to have the cookout supplies in order. It's quite fun! Ok ok, I lied alittle. I like blowing things up too.

My state, were allowed to have fireworks. I usually just go over to a family friends or a relatives house and have dinner and party there. Good for us cuz we don't have to pay for anything except for maybe a side dish.
