    LOL... I do that too kaz... I refuse to give money and if they sing at my door, then I want the whole song!

    I can't stand fireworks and do strongly feel that they should be banned from public sale....

    the only fireworks I'd like to see used are by those hosting an organised firework display under strict saftey conditions.....

    I just cant understand the government still allowing public sale when you hear of so many horror stories of people and animals getting hurt by them

    Re: Fireworks

    Spot did link some firework laws on another thread for me.

    I know it's illegal to sell to kids which my local asian shop hasn't grasped in the last 10 years and it's illegal to set them off after 11 pm which in my area, no-one takes any notice of.

    We are very fortunate to have floor to ceiling windows and live a short distance from the local football ground. Once a year we get to sit at our windows with a nice cup of British tea and get a free firework display.

    Something we regually ask ourselves, is where do people get the money for them??
    We put on a display some years ago in the field outside our house for kids of single parents. We had a great time and i cooked them hot dogs and burgers but the cost of the fireworks were horrendous. If i remember right, i think we spent nearly £200 and they lasted about an hour.
    there are some super one's in the shops costing £30 a time. It's these i object to. I don't mind the average one that goes 'phut' when it's lit but these industrial strength can actually damage property and menace people's pets and wildlife.
    Yes, i know domestic cats kill more birds than fireworks Spot, but as i said before, you don't see a cat bothering flocks of geese, herds of cattle and packs of foxes.
