“I wouldn't say I dread it, it was worse when I still had our cat and when my two children were very young but even then it was a inconvenience for one night (well give or take).
It's similar to the Halloween/trick or treat debate, it's not going to go away so far better to accept it and deal with it the best you can.”

“I don't dislike fireworks per se, I used to love them when I was small. However, there was not the obsession with loud bangs (some of them so repetitive you lose count). Organised displays are the way to go and then if you have pets you can plan around them with a proper start and finish time. I just turn up the tv and radio but I do wish it was 'firework night' in the singular; sometimes it seems to go on forever.”

“"Does anyone else dread firework night ?" - Explain, what do you mean?It is apart of history, do you mean do we hate fireworks, the history, displays, events....?”

“Must admit to not being interested in Firework displays since a young age (apart from the Firework Championships at Belvoir Castle and Plymouth Ho which are a tad different), but I went to a really good display at East Bridgeford Garden Centre tonight, only 3 quid. Fire was a bit huge, and wind was sending embers into petrol station forecourt!! Other than that it was brilliant.. reminds me of Melton Rugby Club displays I used to go to as a Kid. forgot how good organised displays really are.”

“My organised local one would cost us £16...at the moment i wouldnt pay it as im not sure the little ones would like the diaplay/noise..maybe when they are older..why does it have to cost so much? Couldnt they gain money back from refrshement stalls etc?”

“Sounds a bit Steep mam35..
What I don't understand is people who take dogs to firework displays,
they either do their business somewhere dark where you can tread in it.
stand there shivering in fright,
or get aggressive to other dogs,
The other night there were at least 3 locked in cars, barking during the display.”
