    It's that time of the year again, when we light up the sky with pretty fireworks.

    But the question is.... Do you like fireworks? I don't, mainly because they terrify my pets :yes: but what do you think?

    Yay or nay? :hmmm:

    They're pretty but it takes a lot of effort to deal with the loud noise of them.

    Nay.

    They are just so anticlimactic and disappointing. I have no idea why people get so excited by them.

    Nay. Fireworks are boring, I've never understood why anyone is supposed to be entertained by a bunch of sparkly lights in the sky.

    Nay because they scare both pets and wildlife.

    The fireworks shown in most places are pretty boring and generic anyway. Unless someone gets a giant dragon one like from LOTR, I'm not interested

    Sometimes they're pretty, but they scare animals and so often people don't clean up after themselves

    I say nay, because even though they look pretty, they are way too loud and scare both me and my cat, and other people and animals too (the intermittent really loud ones always make me jump!). Also, people can be so irresponsible with them :noway:

    Yea for me Pretty to watch, and amazing to photograph, especially if the camera is a slow one! I do agree that they scare animals, tho - when we had guinea pigs, we always had to pile lots of sound-insulating things on the hutch, so they weren't frightened to death!
