Baby, you’re a firework

No, not that Katy Perry song. But this video explains, in a very easy to understand way, how she was right and we are like fireworks.

July 4th is the biggest day for fireworks in the U.S., but the season is just starting here in Japan. Have you been to any big fireworks displays? Are you going this summer? And which word do you like better — fireworks or “flower-fire” (花火). I think the Japanese word is much more descriptive and beautiful (though English speakers probably won’t understand you unless they know the Japanese word), but the English word does put the focus on how much effort it must take to make them!
