    Catherine Wheels are a traditional element of most firework displays. When ignited, the wheel will begin to quickly spin, with sparks and flames being created simultaneously. It is a spectacular sight. 

    Though the first record of this firework is 1761, there is a gruesome legend that dates back to the 4thCentury. According to this, it is named after Saint Catherine of Alexandria, who was sentenced to death by a form of torture called ‘breaking the wheel.’ However, when she touched the wheel, it fell to pieces, just like magic.

    Malta holds the Guinness World record for the largest Catherine Wheel. In fact, in Malta, the wheels are an important part of the traditional village fiestas, where some even hold competitions to make this firework. As technology continues to progress, the more vibrant the Catherine Wheels are each year!
