Made in China

Fireworks were invented during the 7th century in China. As such, China is the largest manufacturer and exporter of fireworks in the world, with over 90% of fireworks being produced there. Around the world, they are usually used during festivals, celebrations, and holidays.
I love watching fireworks. Back in my home country, I used to live near a park which held a big festival every year. I remember hopping on the roof of my house and watching it without any obstructed view or people to block my way.
Sadly I can't do that any more since that house has been wiped out, but it was a great memory nonetheless.
