With the long weekend here, many people will likely set off fireworks in their backyard or the local park. Before pulling up to a store or trailer and spending hundreds of dollars on pyrotechnics, educate yourself. From Roman candles to Catherine wheels to sparklers and other novelty types, fireworks are enchanting, but also dangerous. Keep your babies at a safe distance and don't ever let children light the fireworks.
