I remember back when I was 17 seeing in the new millennium with fireworks in our back garden, the only time we have ever had fireworks at home and it was wonderful, I still remember the excitement of a 'display' in our back garden but nowadays the thought of something going wrong just scares me so much...so much that I haven't even ever let the kids hold a sparkler, let alone hold a display in the back yard! Although according to the NCC Home Learning firework safety quiz I got 8/8 and understand how to be safe around fireworks so maybe this year I might give sparklers a go (we will see!) If you are planning a home display this year why not take the quiz yourself and see how you fare?

Whatever your plans are this New Year make sure you have a good one, and remember to stay safe.
