I'm assuming you're not American? We still have another major holiday first, Independence day. Also smaller holidays, Memorial Day, Juneteenth and Labor Day. Though I do feel the sentiment. I married into a family that owns and runs a few fireworks stores, one of which converts into a Halloween store after the fireworks season ends. So it really is like that come July 5th every year. Time to rebuild the store for Spookums time!

I'm curious... Is Halloween not a big fireworks holiday there? Definitely the biggest day of fireworks in Ireland.

Or do they sell the fireworks and Halloween gear after the conversion?

We do continue to sell fireworks on one end of the store after the conversion. We have them available year round, even if we have to come and open the store for a single customer in the off-season. But, no, fireworks aren't common for Halloween here. Halloween sales are primarily costumes, makeup, wigs, prosthetics, props, decorations, and fog machines. Independence Day/The Fourth of July is definitely the biggest fireworks day here, followed by Memorial Day, New Years, and Diwali, in that order.
