I Hate Fireworks

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 36 People

    In this world, fireworks lose their meaning.

    When first invented by the Chinese, we were not surrounded by bright lights and bright screens that do not resemble fire. Fireworks were incredible because it was a very unique way to look at fire. They could feel patriotic about having created these magical little rockets. But...

    My Poor Babies

    I know they look pretty but my poor cats and kittens are so scared from all the noise right now - bless them. They need extra love from their mummy so I have just given them all a great big cuddle!!

    It's True.

    I don't share this fear with everyone since it seems so lame to be scared of what most people love, but the fact is, I can not stand fireworks. I think it's more of a deep set fear, for when I was about five I was burned my a firework on my hand leaving a terrible burn mark...

    Roof Damaged

    I really hate fireworks after one came through the roof of my bungalow and I didn't know that it had. I thought it had just gone off in the drive close to the door but it actually did £500 worth of damage in the roof void and actually smouldered through the night. Luckily...

    That's not entirely true.

    Actually I love to watch fireworks fired by professionals at a save distance. What I hate is fireworks in the hands of the average person. It is when people are trying to impress their peers with fireworks that I get uncomfortable. Trying to create the biggest bang, having a...

    I Got Shot

    My dad has always bought his own fireworks and him and his friends light them off on the 4th of July. Two years ago one of his friend decided to put one in upside down. When he lit the fuse it went all crazy, and came straight at us. The person in front of me jumped out of the...

    Sorry to sound like a party pooper but at the moment my Dog is going absolutely crazy and he's been barking so much he's lost his bark. I can't see why they need to make ones that only have huge bangs. Its so irresponsible. They sell them in shops for ages before firework night...

    Too Loud For Me...

    As much as I like the fact that other people get enjoyment out of them and that they do look pretty, I really hate the fact that they are so loud! I know this will sound really stupid, but once, I went to an Arts type thing on a Sunday, and I didn’t know that there would...
