Lighting Up the Skies on the 4th of July

Did you know that fireworks originated in China thousands of years ago? Fireworks as we know them today were based from roasted bamboo, which explodes with a bang when heated because of its hollow air pockets. Then sometime between 600-900 A.D., Chinese alchemists mixed together several ingredients that produced gunpowder. This mixture was inserted into the bamboo, which were then put into a fire to produce a loud blast.

Boom, the first fireworks were born!

Fireworks have served various purposes through the ages. European rulers liked to use fireworks to brighten and illuminate their castles; it was the Europeans who brought their knowledge of fireworks to the New World. John Adams believed that these displays would play a large role in celebrating the Fourth of July, and told his wife in a letter that the day would become the most “memorable in the history of America.” The first Fourth of July celebration was in 1777, a year after the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Since then, fireworks have been used to commemorate other days of importance, such as presidential inaugurations and New Year’s Eve. Of course, fireworks are always to be used with the utmost safety and precaution. Visit the National Council on Fireworks Safety for more information.

Spending time outside this holiday weekend? Take a look around and see if your patio or porch could use some sprucing up! In honor of America’s birthday we’re featuring our Iron Shipyard Lantern, which would look great on any deck. For more information call us at (818) 597-9494 or email us at
