It's been awhile since I've really been blown away by a YouTube video. That changed after I watched this!

Last year I got to fire off high flying legitimate fireworks in Nashville. Prior to that I used to celebrate Christmas on the 4th of July with my dad and step siblings. Yes, it really was awesome celebrating Christmas twice a year. Our 4th of July Christmas was a lot like the one in December. It came complete with presents, a turkey dinner, and house decorations. We even hunted through the woods and chopped down a tree.

By now you must be thinking that my family is a little bit loony but there was a rhyme and reason for our summer time Christmas celebration; we did it so we wouldn't end up receiving the same gifts from both sets of parents. At dusk after we opened all our gifts, we went outdoors and set off fireworks!

New York City's fireworks show is one of the best that our country has to offer. If you get a chance to ever watch in person, I highly recommend it! The next best thing to being there  is watching this video!
