In the state of Texas, fireworks can only be sold from June 24th through July 4th and December 20th through January 1st. As an African-American, our Independence Day is on June 19th and because of this policy, we can’t purchase celebratory packages such as fireworks, firecrackers, etc until after the holiday has passed. I understand that getting Juneteenth to be a recognized holiday (with days off for celebration like the Fourth of July) will be a long shot but what we can do is get the sale of fireworks and other celebratory packages available so that we can properly celebrate.
