Happy 4th of July! Did you know that fireworks were invented in China? Some say fireworks were invented quite by accident. Really! The story goes that a field cook was cooking, got something a little wrong and BOOM! Fireworks! Actually, that is only one of the many stories about how fireworks were invented. It is also widely credited to Marco Polo for bringing fireworks (in the form of gun powder) to the West.
I know this...fireworks are certainly a lot of fun!
