Did You Know…

Fireworks were first used in China

Fireworks were invented over 2000 years ago in a land far from Slough, China. They were used in a similar manner to how they are now, to celebrate occasions like New Year, but also to frighten enemy armies in battle. The Chinese became internationally renowned for creating simple, cheap fireworks, and to this day China is still the biggest manufacture and exporter of fireworks. In fact, it currently makes a whopping 90% of the world’s total. As they’re experts, we find many of their products end up in our firework shops.
