So, tonight is firework night. Probably my least favourite night of the year. I really don’t understand it, so today I’m gonna rant about it! Here’s my reasons to why I hate bonfire night:
1. It scares pets, especially dogs, and it makes them bark. Not only are the poor things terrified, but they also howl and bark like crazy, which keeps the whole neighbourhood up. Not to mention that if they get a noise complaint, it will be on the owner of the dog, and not the person setting off the fireworks in the first place.
2. Nobody seems to understand that firework night is on the 5TH OF NOVEMBER. They start going off in mid October and they continue every night until the end of November. Then they start again in mid December because of New Years! That’s basically three months of them! Every. Single. Night.
3. The idiots who buy them. I could scream and shout all day about these types of people. I’m pretty sure it was last year when a postman was severely injured and sent to hospital because some dumba$$es thought it would be a good idea to “prank” him by sticking a firework in his post bag and running off. He could of DIED. There are tons of people like them around our area - that was only one case. If they’re going to sell fireworks, which in my opinion they probably shouldn’t, they should be selling them to people with a license to say that they can handle explosives safely.
4. The whole reason for the event is just...why? Christians believe that Christmas was the birth of Jesus, and people who aren’t Christians use Christmas as a time for family, flashy decorations, presents and large meals. The summer holidays are to give kids and teachers alike that break from school to look forward to. Halloween is for cool spooky decorations, spooktober memes, and of course - parties and trick or treating. Firework night? It’s to celebrate some dudes death because he tried to blow up parliament. No births, no well-deserved breaks, no spooky celebrations..you don’t even get a day off! It’s literally just because some criminal got sentenced to death a few hundred years ago. Pretty pointless ‘celebration’ if you ask me.
Okay, rant over! Do you hate firework night? Feel free to comment :) B4N!
