Images of fireworks from around the world both modern and historical fireworks images. By definition fireworks, also called pyrotechnic displays, are combustible or explosive devices that produce a striking display of colored light and loud noises. Fireworks have practical uses for example to signal over long distances. However, we love fireworks for their entertainment value.
