Not even a big one.
Some years ago, Mate O'Mine was renting a house with a pile of rubble in the back garden (when you're young, into bikes and not gardening, you don't care about rubble in the back garden).
Come 5th Nov. that year. him and his OH offered to host the bike club Fireworks Night, we all brought some along and we're busily sticking 'em in and on the pile of rubble, lighting 'em, scaring the sh1t out of the neighbours' pets and the local wildlife and generally acting irresponsibly.
If there was downside, it was - having lit a firework - retreating in good order from the pile of rubble while not damaging oneself on the bits of rubble concealed by the dark and the overgrown lawn.
Nevertheless, all went well 'til ... a lit Roman Candle fell from vertical to horizontal ... pointing at the house ...
... twenty-odd people trying to avoid balls of flaming and exploding magnesium, screaming women (at least I think it was only women screaming) and bits of rubble concealed by dark and overgrowth is hilarious ... afterwards.
