For the past several years I have participated in a backyard fireworks display that rivals the official display of the neighborhood the backyard can be found in. Ok, so maybe it wasn't that good, but it felt that good. Some things are just better when you do them yourself, especially when you do them with friends. And setting off explosives is definitely one of those things. Now that I'm living in Boston, I'm relegated to watching the fireworks display in the place where our country was born, with minor events like the Boston Pops and historical reenactments upon the actual fields where our independance was won.
Anyways, if you don't get into colored gunpowder, maybe you're into golf MMO's. Never the game to let a holiday go by without some silly contest or 5, Pangya is hosting a scavenger hunt and art contest. Sure, you could drink beer, hold a roman candle and pretend you're the Statue of Liberty, and do your best to avoid legal entanglements; or you could draw a comic strip related to an online golf mmo for unspecified prizes.
Me, I'm gonna listen to the boston pops and wish I was poorly singing Rock Band and trying not to set my friends houses on fire while entertaining the masses (aka our wives and girlfriends).

former glory. By placing the Comet in its rightful place nature can
finally be revived. To save Pangya, players will find themselves
deeply entrenched in a competitive field where they will experience a
surge of emotions, excitement, and heart-stopping determination as
they attempt to putt the last critical shot amidst mystical
fire-breathing dragons. Players can go head to head in Tournament,
Pang Battle, Team Match, or Family Mode. Join Pangya and escape to

the game including certain characters, clothing sets, new equipment
and accessories will be available to purchase via micro-transaction.

provide new inventory and equipment, allows them to send gifts to
other players and more. Gamers can earn Pang by finishing a hole at
par or better and by showcasing powerful shots.
