Of course, if you don’t take care or if you act irresponsibly, fireworks can be dangerous, unfortunately each year around a thousand people are injured by fireworks in Britain. But that doesn’t mean everyone should cancel the fireworks and pour water on the bonfire. Rather, what’s needed is some good planning and a level head on the night.
