what is it with men and fecking fireworks? we're having a party tonight. a friend has had a load of fireworks delivered. very kind. but imo misguided. net result is that I have a hideous feeling of butterflies and doom in my stomach taht will not go away until the fecking things are over and we still have 12 uninjured (but probably stressed and crying) kids. I said I didn;t want them. dh said he did. aibu to not want this extra hassle and stress? not to mention sodding risk of serious injury.

Keep the kids indoors.

YANBU, I really dont like kids and fireworks in back gardens.

I agree. but I don;t really want to take responsibility for all 12 kids, (seeing as I have the small matter of dinner for 30 to attend to) but on the other hand it's my house so I kind of do feel responsible. and maybe this is lurking into paranoia but I always have visions of a firework hitting a window scattering broken glass over assembled children...

we had to take cover last year coz one of the rockets didn't take off but went around our friends back garden. All the kids had to hide under a table and two adults got mildly burnt it was hell

I HATE fireworks in back gardens - I am going to set up a ban fireworks political party - official displays only please.

YANBU. They should be restricted to official displays only.

It's too easy to get really big display type fireworks now. All the supermarkets have them. People buy them and then are setting them off in totally inappropriately sized gardens.

have to agree with you .. I hate the things and they really should only be allowed in licensed displays. Friends of mine used to have a firework party and would vie to get the biggest, most dangerous fireworks possible. I used to stay inside.

Turn off all the lights and keep the kids inside and watch from the window if I were you.

YANBU. I hate noisy fireworks. I love pretty sparkly ones, but the noisy bangers should be restricted to public displays or banned altogether.

classification of fireworks

I used the term loosely. I just mean the huge great things that you can now get from specialist firework dealers
