Class B Fireworks

Fireworks today are known as a form of celebration such as on Independence Day or New Years’ day. Not only are they spectacular in how they look but also how they work. The history of fireworks is not fully known but a number of theories are suggested. One theory is believed that fireworks originated in China more than 2,000 years ago on accident. It’s said that commonly used charcoal, sulfur, and saltpeter were compressed together in a bamboo tube by a Chinese field cook. While compressed these things compressed and burned together to create an explosion. The Chinese are credited with the discovery of gunpowder, so the concept that they created the firework seems to be reasonable. Some sources do believe that fireworks originated in India.

The firecracker was the first real firework similar to what we call fireworks today. Over 1,000 years ago, a Chinese monk named Li Tian created the firecracker. The loud noise was used as a way to scare off evil spirits and ghosts then; and still today. But as time went on and the discovery of black powder was made, more complex forms of fireworks were created.

With the discovery of black powder, what we know as fireworks took on a whole new meaning. Europe and Germany lead the way with their enthusiasm for fireworks centuries ago. As the popularity grew for this dynamic display, the rage eventually spread to America. Long before the Revolutionary War, fireworks were being used as a form of celebration for important events. The first firework show was held in 1777, six years prior to whether Americans’ knew whether they would survive the war or not. Americans did survive the war, and to this day we use fireworks to celebrate our Independence Day and any other special occasion or important event. You can acquire wholesale fireworks for sale.
