The local fireworks was the day before on the third, and didn't start until 9:20--the time it actually gets dark here. Which is even later (obviously given different latitudes) than in Maryland. It made me wonder what time they start the festivities in places like Alaska. Do they just give up on the idea of it being completely dark? Of course, we had our neighbor's fireworks to listen to on the following days. It was......not awesome. The Fourth of July really is not one of my favorite holidays. I am really quite a curmudgeon. I am o.k. with that. (*waves fists at all the young hooligans*)
