    Do you like / Did you like

    I went to see the fireworks yesterday.
    I am wondering to know how does my friend think about the fireworks.
    I should ask her: Do you like it? or Did you like it?

    Past tense. Use "did".

    'Did you like them?'

    As the fireworks have finished, there's no reason to use the present- you're asking about yesterday's fireworks, not fireworks in general.
