In the country I live in firecrackers are a really big deal for Christmas and New Years. And there are constantly campaigns to keep them out of kids' hands because so many kids end up in the children's hospital burn unit every year. But it is such a part of the festivities, I can't imagine completely prohibiting the kids being around them. I like JollyGG's philosophy of making sure they learn to use them safely at home with their parents. I figure around the time our kid is 7 or 8 we will let him learn to light some of the smaller ones with direct adult supervision and assistance.
