To think it's too late to be letting off fireworks?

One of my neighbours has just let off a load of extremely loud fireworks. It's gone 10pm for crying out loud!

I realise they have probably waited this late due to the lighter evenings but this is why people don't generally have fireworks in July.

I now have a screaming baby to settle.

Oh this has just happened to me!
<do you live in the West Country?>
Bloody frustrating.

<do you live in Torbay?>
If so I'm quite enjoying them (although wouldn't be if dc's had been woken)

Whatiswrongwithmykid Sat 02-Jul-16 22:19:45

No I don't live in the West Country.

More fireworks now! What is the occasion to warrant it?

You would hate the place I live in shock

Some have just started up right now. I'm in Bristol. Must be dickhead night.

I'm much further down than Torbay Holes. It must be the night for twats fireworks!

I hate it when neighbours let off fireworks. It's hypocritical of me since I used to love street parties with fireworks as a kid, but now that I'm old and have dogs I just find it annoying!

I'm on the Wirral and some have just been set there something special about tonight?

Whatiswrongwithmykid Sat 02-Jul-16 22:23:01

So there appear to be fireworks all over the country tonight. Why?? Am I missing something?

TroysMammy Sat 02-Jul-16 22:23:18

Yes, nearly 8 months too late. What an arsehole.

Some just went off here too? 4th of July? clutching

Happening here too, North Essex.

How odd, started near me just as I read the thread title! I'm in south east London. Is it the end of Ramadan?

TroysMammy Sat 02-Jul-16 22:25:55

Perhaps American Independence Day is now included in the UK calendar considering the "special relationship" we have with them.

Or is it coming to the end of Ramadan, Festival of Eid?

nancy75 Sat 02-Jul-16 22:30:50

Looks like Ramadan finishes next week so probably not for that

Here too (Surrey/Hants border). There's been a carnival locally, maybe to do with that.

HitShappens Sat 02-Jul-16 22:34:13

Here too in sheffield! What are we missing? grin

LewisFanIsBack Sat 02-Jul-16 22:34:56

here too in Hertfordshire... so annoying

PinkGeranium Sat 02-Jul-16 22:36:16

And here Surrey SE way

nancy75 Sat 02-Jul-16 22:36:51

Suddenly loads going off now, we don't live in a very Muslim or American area, the noise doesn't bother me I just want to know what I'm missing out on!

I don't think 10pm on a Saturday is too late to be letting fireworks off.

ApocalypseSlough Sat 02-Jul-16 22:37:01

nancy are you near D College? Its Founders Day. DD has taken the dog for a walk 😳

RadicalPessimist Sat 02-Jul-16 22:37:42

Here as well. It's fucking annoying. What on earth are they for? 4th of July is all I can think of.

Tuiles Sat 02-Jul-16 22:38:25
