I really miss the point...
I hate them! I hate what they do to animals, driving them to hysteria with fear. Last night on the news there were countless animals that got lost and had to be housed at the SPCA because they got scared of fireworks. At least our puppies being hunting dogs are ok with fireworks, but we keep a close eye on them. And I hate the fact that some dork in our neighborhood thought last night at about 8pm, just as the grown ups sat down for a nice family dinner over here, was a great time to host his own little show for his drunken 50 best friends. Waking up Little man C and driving him to tears. My goodness, New years is done and dusted - get over it!
It is illegal here to do your own fireworks display and we only really have 3 nights a year that we have problems with this - Diwali (the hindu festival of lights), Guy folks and New Years Eve. Frankly, you can call the police, but they are so overworked with bigger crime issues that it is just a useless frustration going that route.
