History of Fireworks in Celebrations
The use of fireworks in celebrations dates back centuries and can actually be traced to the Han Dynasty in 200 B.C. China, according to time.com. People are said to have “roasted bamboo stalks until they would turn black and sizzle, and the air inside the hollow stalks would explode.”
Historians say that at some point Chinese alchemists improved on these primitive fireworks by filling bamboo shoots with gunpowder made from saltpeter and throwing them into a fire. Another early recipe that the Chinese employed for fireworks was by crushing old iron pots and scraps into sand and adding the sand to gunpowder.
