OK, the obvious one is...don't light fireworks in your hand. When my mom was a little girl, she lit a firecracker in her hand and instead of enjoying watermelon and hot dogs, she spent her Independence Day in the emergency room. Of course this story was told to us EVERY 4th of July, and believe you me, we never lit any firecrackers in our hands!

We want to make sure that everyone has a super fun day celebrating America's freedom, so check out some ways that you and your family can stay safe, AND have an awesome 4th of July celebration!
