There are many injuries caused by fireworks every year. Most of these are caused by people being careless with their own fireworks. I am not one of them. I have never bought my own fireworks as private displays are never as good as a public display. There is a great difference between seeing fireworks that go *pop* and ones that go BOOM!
However, the one downside of public firework displays is that you find yourself walking along in the dark with a lot of other people. It's no excuse, of course, but that's how I came to walk straight into a concrete bollard on Saturday night. It hurt at the time but then was OK for the display and didn't hurt at all yesterday but today is a different story.
