Life is like a box of Christmas fireworks, a celebration of the past and future. As teens my brothers would drive across the state line to buy fireworks for a family Fourth of July celebration. Through the years, fireworks have become a Christmas tradition. On a cold, clear night we gaze at the brilliant colors against the black sky and reflect on the months that have past and pause to consider the New Year.
