Snap, Crackle, Pop, Fourth of July

Independence and freedom are ideals worth celebrating. Liberty for all is what will make us one Humanity. We live in a friendly neighborhood in Madison. Last Saturday we donned masks and joined them for a small outdoor, social-distanced July Fourth celebration. Here’s the beautiful show our neighbors gave us.

In Mexico, Central and South America, Independence Day is most commonly in September.

New Year’s Eve and Christmas are two additional celebrations that often include fireworks, called fuegos artificiales in Spanish.

  1. I love fireworks! There were fireworks of all sorts being set off in our neighborhood and the surrounding ones, even lots of the ones you would see at a fireworks show. I was astonished, but at least in a good way. There weren’t the usual public displays this year, of course, so I think people went out of their way to have mini celebrations, although we’re new here. Maybe this happens every year.

  2. I’m like a kid when it comes to fireworks. The prevent people from gathering during the pandemic, fireworks were banned in the City of Los Angeles. That did not stop some residents from putting on their own show which I safely watched from my living room window.
