Let’s be honest. No one does Independence Day like Americans. A good friend of mine invited me to hang out with her family in Long Island this American Independence Day, and what an experience. I don’t think I’ve ever been so close to fireworks in my life. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many fire crackers in my life as well. If you have asthma or any lung problems, I wouldn’t suggest you do fireworks on your front lawn, because it’s smoke central, and possibly burn central if any of the little pieces fly back.
