Someone in our neighborhood just loves fireworks. I was reading last night when suddenly it sounded as if hail was coming down on the roof. I couldn’t imagine, so I listened more carefully and sure enough, this neighbor was getting a head start on detonating his supply of noisy fireworks. It lasted for quite some time. I went to bed to the pop-pop-pop of the celebration, but it didn’t keep me awake.
We can expect the same scenario every time there’s any sort of holiday, even including Easter, Christmas, New Year’s Day. Sometimes we have to try to figure out what this neighbor is celebrating, because there’s nothing on the calendar to help us out. Maybe his birthday, or anniversary. Maybe he’s just feeling good 🙂
It’s not really a problem. He doesn’t keep it up all night long. It’s just kind of a curiosity. In my childhood, the only time anyone ever set off fireworks was on the Fourth of July. We’ve lived in this neighborhood for nearly 23 years now, and it still takes me by surprise when whoever it is starts his noisy party.
