4th of July Nights

I've always loved the 4th of July. Grilling out, swimming, fireworks. It's fun. But the main thing I love is nights on July 4th. There's a haze from all the fireworks. You can hear the echoes all around (I live in the mountains), with bursts of color coming over the trees every so often. You can smell the sulfur. Something about it is just stupidly magical and I can't describe why I like it so much. Maybe it's a feeling of being united in mutual celebration. Maybe it's just fun because things blow up. Whatever it is, I love July 4th and hope that everyone has a happy (and safe) Independence Day.
