how much did you spend on fireworks?

How much did everyone spend on fireworks this year. I did not buy any, after the slow year last year trying to not waste too much money.

Real fire works (anything really cool or loud) are illegal where we live.

My Man bought some sparklers and some PopPops for our 11 year old.

I found out after the 4th of July, that on his way home from working with the Lakota Nation in South Dakota last week he could have gotten me a brick of Lady Fingers, but he didn't. POUT. I like things that go BOOM. The last time he bought me fireworks, I saved one package and used them in the street when Obama won the election.

His excuse? "We were making good time and we didn't want to stop." What IS it with men and "making good time" when they go somewhere? Eighteen hours in the truck, and he couldn't have stopped?

But, our neighborhood was like a War Zone. We live in an unincorporated area, and cops are not seen often. I felt like I was in Beirut or something for a while there.

I didn't spend any money on fireworks this year. Spent money at a carnival, but nothing on fireworks.

Someone mentioned Lady Fingers last night when we were shooting ours off? What are Lady Fingers?

I spent absolutely nothing! I just sat on my balcony and enjoyed the view of everyone else spending their money!

Lady Fingers are small firecrackers braided together in groups of about 2 dozen. We don't get them often, but once in a while they are fun.

None - don't have money, and also had friends who bought plenty.

None, I didn't want to buy any at all. The kids watched the neighbors, and I was on tv. Oh well, didn't want to waste money.

None. We don't buy our own fireworks. We will go to a public fireworks show if we want them.

$5 for sparklers and snakes. Used to spend $50 or so a few years ago, but not much anymore.

About $30, but everything was two for one. Amounted to about half a paper grocery bag and lasted for an hour and a half. Kids enjoyed it a lot.

I live in a state that doesn't allow the sale of fireworks. :\

About $110. But that doesn't buy very many here in CA. Had about a dozen, mostly mid-sized fountains, with a few large ones at the end.

I live in one of the few cities in Los Angeles County which allows them—one of the perks of living on a mostly Chinese area.

Of course, state law prohibits the really exciting ones. But that doesn't stop my neighbors. It seems like there are more illegal ones on my street every year.

I didn't buy any, I didn't see any. I heard them for 4 straight days, but had no intention of stopping what I was doing to see colors in the sky.

We didn't buy any fireworks but saw some go off a few houses down.
