Staying in because the damned fireworks terrify the dogs. Many get set off throughout the evening so its hard even being able to let dogs into the garden when they need to go because the fireworks can and do go off at any moment.
In other words, thanks to fireworks, I can never let my hair down and actually have a fun evening. Before fireworks were such a 'thing' for new years, I used to go out and meet up with friends at parties or pubs, those days are long gone now, purely and simply because of damned fireworks.
Don't like them for all and sundry to set off, can you tell ?
