Well How-Dee-Doo…Fireworks in October.

According to my husband, I’m not unlike Clint Eastwood’s character in “Gran Torino”. There are some differences: I’m not a racist, I don’t own a shotgun, and I’m not an 80 something year old man…but I do hate when people get on my lawn. You know what I also hate? Fireworks on inappropriate occasions. That’s one of the annoying things about where I live, some of the people in this area don’t seem to care how late it is or whether or not it would be generally considered unacceptable, they’ll light fireworks off whenever they have the chance. Fail.

Here’s a little tid bit for you, aggravating neighbors…



When I first heard the fireworks a few days ago, I wondered if I’d missed something. Maybe there’s some holiday or event that I don’t know about. So I decided to look up the list of obscure national holidays for October:

  • Adopt a Shelter Dog Month
  • American Pharmacist Month
  • Apple Jack Month
  • Awareness Month
  • Breast Cancer Awareness Month
  • Clergy Appreciation Month
  • Computer Learning Month
  • Cookie Month
  • Domestic Violence Awareness Month
  • Eat Country Ham Month
  • International Drum Month
  • Lupus Awareness Month
  • National Diabetes Month
  • National Pizza Month
  • National Vegetarian Month
  • National Popcorn Popping Month
  • Sarcastic Month
  • Seafood Month

Hey, I’m all for celebrating ham (even though we don’t eat it), cookies, and clergy, but can’t we think of a less noisy way to do it?  Also, on a completely unrelated topic, I’d really like for some sort of celebration for Sarcastic Month to be a thing that exists.  It would just be a people saying things like, “Wow…this is REALLY great.  I’m SOOOOO glad I’m here.”

Anyway,  Independence Day and New Years are just about the only acceptable days for fireworks.  So, for the love of all that is holy, please stop setting off fireworks in October.
