Anyone else have neighbors shooting off fireworks early?

I can hear several neighbors, streets over shooting off fireworks.

I never understood it for New Years.......maybe July 4th, sure.

It's not midnight people! Maybe they will run out before then. Been hearing random fireworks since 5pm when it was still daylight then!

I find it annoying I guess. Glad my kids are out of town at cousins and they are heavy sleepers, so when they go to bed they will sleep through it all!

  • I've heard a few. Does it really matter? Especially if they're shooting them off early, maybe it's so they won't keep people up. It only comes around one day a year..
