I know it's a few days early, but here we are. I've been planning it and here it is. The 4th of July Elemental Scavenger Hunt.

For this hunt, I decided to do something a little differently. I made up 5 boxes. Each box is colored according to one of the 5 basic elements... light, fire, water, earth, and darkness. The contents of the boxes also focus on the element as well. Those of you familiar with the Magic card game might get a bit more insight into what the colors reference, and thus, where those boxes might be hidden, and what they might contain.

Here's how the hunt will work. For each box I will present a somewhat vague clue, and every day I will release more of the clue until a box is found. If boxes remain unfound by the 4th of July, I will announce a firework show in discord, select a box at random, and set up a fireworks show in its general area. This will occur randomly during the day.

Clues:
1) At the edge of a blaze of glory, will you find your prize.
Your spirit may yearn to descend, I implore your eyes to resist.

2) Within the bane of many youíll find your penny,
Blaze right through, but make sure you donít head in the right direction.

3) In a place teeming with life, youíll find your strife.
Just outside spawn, youíll find a fawn.

4) In a soothing biome, youíll see your plunder.
The drier you are, the more of a blunder.

5) This box is the easiest if you know where to look,
Youíll also be offered things to cook.
First, please wait, at least 48 hours before attempting to find a second box. This includes pre-searching so that you know where a box is after the 48 hours. Please respect the fact that not everyone is able to get on immediately when a hunt is announced and I create multiple boxes to go to a few people, not all boxes to one or two people.

5) Box found
_iPhoenix_ claims to have found the 4th one.

I've been trying to figure out the first one, but it's very confusing.
After a firework show, the final box has been located by commandblockguy. Since people seemed to have such difficulty with it, here is a breakdown of it.

Look in the nether, the blaze reference was a clue to that.

Don't head down, head up, away from the lava.

Friday is sometimes referred to as "opposite day". Friday's north star would actually be the south star... go south.

Head away from or past lava.

The box is by the [Southern] border. Look up to find it (on a ridge hanging from the ceiling)

I've never heard this before. No wonder scouring the north border of the Nether was useless.
I've never heard of that either. That was quite a confusing clue.
