Today is Independence Day in the U.S. People go to watch big fireworks displays, and they play with fireworks. Unlike in Japan, however, fireworks are very difficult to buy. In fact, they are only sold in summer at some stores. I checked one store, and their web site said that they would be open from June 29 to July 8. Why is it so difficult to find fireworks? Because many Americans think that they are very dangerous. Parents don't want their children to play with fireworks.
