dh not well, just woke him up
Woke DS up too
Neighbours setting off fireworks now?
Every time one goes off I jump out of my skin

What time is too late?

It's Diwali. It could go on for a while!

ChicMama25 Tue 13-Nov-12 22:01:33

YANBU I am suffering here too!

trixie123 Tue 13-Nov-12 22:02:00

Its Diwali today - that'll be why. Bit annoying yes and 10pm a bit late but hopefully won;t go on long

DilysPrice Tue 13-Nov-12 22:02:07

It's Diwali, so I'd say 10pm is not too late, sorry.

PseudoBadger Tue 13-Nov-12 22:02:29

Should stop by 11 smile

YANBU We had fireworks her this evening too. Dd1 was already having problems getting to sleep and it didn't help

StuntGirl Tue 13-Nov-12 22:02:57

Yup, Diwali. They're going off round here too, I quite like it!

Svrider Tue 13-Nov-12 22:03:41

I don't understand why some fireworks are so loud
Unacceptable IMO

ChicMama25 Tue 13-Nov-12 22:03:47

Sorry don't care what it is, it's antisocial behaviour, whether it is November 5th or any other festival! On fireworks night ppl had the decency to at least wait till the weekend!

OTTMummA Tue 13-Nov-12 22:05:39

YANBU, it is antisocial, disruptive and i would love to ban private displays and just have public ones.

Aaah, Diwali. That'll explain why my neighbours set off a load of fireworks just as DD had gone to sleep and DS was going up to bed (both DCs hate fireworks). Pissed me off that I had to soothe drug my kids, but I did enjoy the display.

blackeyedsusan Tue 13-Nov-12 22:07:34

i hate it... but only because I can' t see the damn things and am getting frustrated!

we had fireworks at 12.30am last night.

nancy75 Tue 13-Nov-12 22:08:03

Ottmumma, do you think anywhere would hold public displays for Diwali? Asking for the fireworks to wait for the weekend is like saying we should only have Christmas on a Saturday

Petershadow Tue 13-Nov-12 22:08:40

11???
Bloody hell
Dh threatening to get the hosepipe over the fence!

SoftKittyWarmKitty Tue 13-Nov-12 22:09:33

We had loads close by earlier. They woke up DS who thought world war 6 was starting (don't ask me what happened to world wars 3-5 hmm). I'm in agreement about private fireworks - there should be organised displays only.

ChicMama25 Tue 13-Nov-12 22:10:00

Most people have to go to work tomorrow we do not get this whole week off! Bit of consideration and less entitlement please!

DilysPrice Tue 13-Nov-12 22:11:44

10pm really isn't that late. It's past most children's bedtime, but if you set them off at 8pm you'd still wake up a load of toddlers. I reckon that after 11pm on a weekday you'd have the right to get grumpy.

maddening Tue 13-Nov-12 22:12:08

The thing is - if someone wants to set fireworks off after a reasonable time there are ones that make a lot less noise - fountains and Roman candles - there are even quiet rockets - so anyone could celebrate whatever they fancy without pissing off the neighbours- there's no excuse.

Fine, that wasn't my experience, but want to be clear am not denigrating anyone's festival or implying any cultures are superior or anything stupid like that. It's just that its a weeknight and people should be considerate of that.

Petershadow Tue 13-Nov-12 22:18:08

Gone a bit quiet now, maybe they read this thread

They did seem particularly noisy

Still going here, after 2 fucking weeks of fireworks every fucking night I'm starting to get pissed off

StuntGirl Tue 13-Nov-12 22:22:54

Why is it entitled to have some fireworks for diwali? confused
