Fourth of July is the most famous and important event in the US and every resident of the country wants to take part in Uncle Sam’s birthday’s celebration. Besides, it is known that 4th of July is all about the fireworks!

Uncle Sam’s birthday is known as the event, where the biggest amount of beer is sold, comparing even with such other famous fests as St. Patrick’s Day and New Year’s Eve, stated the Beer Institute. However this event is better known for many millions of pounds of fireworks, sold every year for celebration, according to American Family Care. Besides, the Independence Day is also called ‘the most dangerous American holiday weekend of the year’ by the majority of walk-in hospitals.

According to officials, during the months surrounding the holiday, up to 300 of people per day come to hospitals with injuries caused by fireworks.

The police stated that use of sale of the majority of fireworks is prohibited by the law, but people don’t care about it at all as when the sun goes down on the 4th July, colorful lights blow up the night sky in every little corner of the country.

The only fireworks permitted for the public’s use without a permit are sparklers and devices containing extremely small amounts of powder; no more than in a toy-pistol cap.
Firecrackers, Roman candles, cherry bombs and M-80s are illegal

– stated Marcus L. Brown, acting state police Commissioner.

To warn Americans that use of fireworks can be fatal for them, authorities even shared via media and internet a video, which shows fireworks burn and behead mannequins. However, that video failed to have the desired effect ahead of Independence Day celebration.
