    1. Firecracker: You are a classic when it comes to Fourth of July. Your Fourth of July will be traditional with an all-American theme. Go enjoy your apple pie with these classic fireworks.
    2. Sparklers: You might be basic, but you never get old. Your Instagram posts are all perfectly posed and professional. You are sweet, kind and charming.
    3. Don’t buy fireworks: Fourth of July might not be your favorite holiday, but that is totally fine! You do you. Watch TV and go to bed early. Fireworks aren’t really your thing.  Instead, use this time to explore the Internet (if you haven’t covered most of it already).
    4. Roman candle fireworks: You are the life of the party — especially on the Fourth of July. You are loud and draw everyone’s attention. You truly are the star of the show.
    5. Bottle rockets: Classic with a twist. This is a “safer” bet for outdoor fun than some other, slightly more dangerous fireworks, but they are well worth it. Your Fourth of July is low-key and really just gives you an extra excuse to hang out with some really good friends.
