What’s your favorite holiday memory? Mine is actually from our fourth of July celebrations. I can remember when I was a kid, getting boxes and boxes of sparklers to share with my friends. My family would usually have a cookout on the grill and wait until it was really dark before they would let the kids have the sparklers. We’d create fantastic light shows dancing around with our sparklers to mass applause of the grownups. I remember especially the sizzle of the spent sparklers as we plunged them into the water buckets. Ah, summer! Where did those halcyon days go?
