Diwali is a festival of lights, not sound.
And when I saw a cracker shop, even more rush !
Coming to the title of the post,
People buy firecrackers which create huge noise (eg. Laxmi bomb, there are many types.).
What do you get when you explode those tiny bombs ?
Noise which makes you deaf, causes sound pollution, scares animals, litters the environment with pieces of paper, etc. (There are many more ill effecs that cannot be listed here)
Moreover, don't you loose your hard earned money in creating such irritating sounds and pollution.
Diwali is the festival of lights, so buy firecrackers which creates light and no (or very less) sound.
