This is a firework classic that is loved by all. A Roman Candle is a long, cylindrical tube-shaped device that ejects a series of stars or colored balles into the air. Some of the newer versions of Roman Candles also have multiple effects. They should be secured in the ground, or something like a bucket of sand, and then ignited. All consumer Roman Candles have the "Do Not Hold in Hand" warning label. Contrary to popular belief, Roman Candles are not meant to be held in your hand anymore. Years ago, they were designed with an area of dead space at the bottom which was intended to protect your hand from occasional side blowouts, but, today's Roman Candles are manufactured with as many balls inside as possible which fill that once avoided dead handle space all the way down.
