So after reading a lot of the humans are space Australians I got to thinking, what would aliens think of fireworks?
Alien: Human Susan please explain why you’re exploding things in the sky.
Susan: What have you never heard of the fourth of July? It’s a way of celebration.
Alien: so you celebrate by exploding powder to make shiny lights in the sky?
Susan: *nods head*
But I also like the idea that they would think they were under attack
Alien: Commander the humans are attacking
CoAlien: Explain the situation.
Alien: They are shooting rockets in the air only for them to explode and release colorful lights. The humans are just watching amazed, this must be a new sort of weapon they have created.
CoAlien: What day is it?
Alien: July 4th sir.
CoAlien: *nods head* from what I heard only Americans celebrate this day by lighting fireworks, whatever that is. Just leave them be I don’t think we will ever be able to understand human culture.
