Though we’re big fans of a sparkler wedding exit, sparklers are fantastic additions to any holiday or event you celebrate. Some of the most popular holidays for lighting sparklers are the 4th of July, New Year’s Eve, Christmas, Diwali, and Valentine’s Day, but they’re not the only ones that could use some sparkler fun. Let’s talk about how you can use sparklers for each of these holidays and more. 

4th of July 

Sparklers are a classic staple of the 4th of July. The 4th of July is one of the most popular times of the year where people buy sparklers and fireworks, and it’s the perfect way to add some patriotic fun to your celebration. 

New Year’s Eve 

Light up the night of your new year with sparklers! This holiday is full of glitter and light. Gather your guests together with sparklers in the air as the ball drops. 


Christmas is another winter holiday where glowing lights can be seen anywhere you go. Sparklers fit right in with the warmth of Christmas lights, and they’re a great way to gather friends and family together for holiday fun. 


Also called the Festival of Lights, this holiday is one of India’s biggest and most important holidays of the year. Along with lighting clay lamps and firework displays, Diwali sparklers have become a popular way to celebrate the Festival of Lights. 

Valentine’s Day 

Make love shine bright on Valentine’s Day with our heart-shaped sparklers! These special sparklers make for lovely photos with your partner or friends on this day of love. 

Memorial Day 

This day of remembrance for men and women who have died serving in the military is also a common time for family and friends to gather for picnics and cookouts. Sparklers are one way to remember loved ones who may have passed by honoring the light they brought to our lives. 

Veteran’s Day 

Veteran’s Day is another holiday where we recognize those who have fought in the military. Celebrate the veterans in your life by lighting sparklers in honor of them with other loved ones. 

Labor Day 

Labor Day is one of the last holidays of the summer, and what better way to go out with a bang than with sparklers? While attending a cookout, festival, or block party for this holiday, try lighting sparklers with your friends and family to enjoy the last bit of the season. 


Egg hunts are fun, but someBUNNY told us that sparklers are just as EGGciting! All puns aside, lighting sparklers is a great way to get the whole family involved in the fun of Easter, and they’re bunny-approved! 


We all know about lighting candles for birthdays, but have you ever tried lighting sparklers on a cake? If cake isn’t your thing, you can still bring sparklers into the birthday fun by hosting a party and lighting them with your loved ones.

There are countless holidays to celebrate each year, and you can find a way to bring sparklers into the celebration of many of them. While this list only scratches the surface of holidays, we hope you have some inspiration for your next sparkler celebration!
