[Easy English Blog] Summer fireworks

We went to a summer firework display last week.

In Japan, many cities have firework displays in summer. When I first came to Japan, I was very surprised to see fireworks in summer. When I lived in England, I only saw fireworks in winter, on 5th November. (Why 5th November? See here!)

I think summer firework displays are a  great idea. All the local people gather outside in the warm summer evening and enjoy eating and drinking while watching the fireworks.

We had a lot of rain just before the fireworks display, so some people were worried. They thought the display might be cancelled. Luckily, it stopped raining a few hours before the display started.

It was an impressive display. It seems to get bigger and better every year. We are already looking forward to the next one! 🙂
