Fireworks on a Sunday?!

How would you feel if you had just laid the baby down, cuddled up to your SO (who is asleep because they have to be up super early), only to jump back up because someone is setting off fireworks? On a Sunday. At 940 pm. A week before the 4th.

They just did that here, and I'm severely peeved. I live in a trailer. Normal noises are loud as it is. Set off fireworks directly overhead and the windows rattle. Apparently it was a church's freedom celebration. Which I totally get. But the only people who seemed to know about it are the people who go to their church or follow them on Facebook. I feel a little heads up would have been nice.

I will note that, yes if the 4th fell on a Sunday, I'd expect it, but not a week before when people have to work the next day and aren't expecting it.

Baby managed to sleep through it. SO is now awake, and sleep does not appear to be in his near future. No point to this other than to rant...as I feel it'd be shitty to rant to the church itself.

I expect it between a week before the 4th to a week after. You'll be fine.

I wouldn't care. It isnt that late and their life doesnt revolve around my child's sleep schedule.

That's what I said. Lol. I've never got the whole partying early thing. Get in the spirit sure, but you don't drink all week to prepare for new years, etc.

It stopped at 1059pm here it is now 1140.

I was peeved. But not a whole lot I can do... yes the ordinance says 8 on sunday... which is why it only went on for about 10 mins til folks got pissed and the police chief went down in his pjs to shut a redneck up...

 My DH would be pissed, as he gets up at 4:45 am for work on Monday.

I have been hearing them for weeks. We live around so many reservations so they are non stop. It can get annoying especially late at night. It's never going to end 😬
