Call me a party pooper. I’m okay with that. I just don’t see the point in fireworks. It’s like “Wohoo. Something flies in the air and explodes.” After you’ve seen it once aren’t they all pretty much the same?
And they’re so loud. I hide in the house, usually with the littlest babies and pets, cowering until they’re over.
For me, comparing a first kiss to fireworks is a very bad thing.
My husband is a total pyro. I get his attraction. But for the rest of you, why do you like fireworks?
I like the spectacle of a good fireworks display.
i enjoy firewoks, but only once a year. I go along with it for the sake of the kids, but if I had it my way I’d stay indoors, eating brownies and watching rom-coms all night.
I also don’t care for fireworks, but that’s because it always reminds me of getting mortared in Iraq. So I think that’s a good enough reason.
@William and Prerna: I enjoy the idea of going to a fireworks show the family, the night sky, the carnival atmosphere. But I can still do all that without the fireworks.
@Redleg: You’ve totally earned the right to hate fireworks. Thanks for serving so the rest of us could choose to watch them. 🙂

I’m with you. I’ve oversensitive to sound and I hate going to see live fireworks. I’d rather stay in my little house, watching the pretty pinwheels of light and explosions on my TV — but with the sound turned down, thank you! 🙂
