Fireworks are a class of low explosive pyrotechnic devices used for aesthetic and entertainment purposes. The most common use of a firework is as part of a fireworks display (also called a fireworks show or pyrotechnics), a display of the effects produced by firework devices. Fireworks take many forms to produce the four primary effects: noise, light, smoke, as well as floating materials (confetti most notably). They may be designed to burn with colored flames and sparks including red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and silver. Displays are common throughout the world and are the focal point of many cultural and religious celebrations. Fireworks are generally classified as to where they perform, either as a ground or aerial firework. Wikipedia
