Elpie: I HATE fireworks sales. In this area, every year, people fire the things off for months, at all hours of the night. This means the rest of us do not have quiet enjoyment of our own homes. This year I don't have a pet but the effects on my dogs in the past few years were enough to make anyone cry.
So, have your fun if you like but for some of us firework sale season is sheer hell. A ban on private sales can't come fast enough for me.
I agree with all of that and we do have a pet. She freaks out everytime. If it was one, two or three times a year we could cope and sedate the dog. Random idiots at random times of any day and/or night, rockets landing on our roof? Sorry, ban time.
