What are Firework Effects?

As you enter into this year's seasonal firework tents you'll notice on the side on the box of the firework you pick up there will be a list of effects. Ranging from waves and humming snakes. It can get confusing and overwhelming to understand what the effect of the firework will really look like. With the help of this post shopping for fireworks won't be a guessing game anymore!
