    Love them or hate them, it is that time of year again for a big bang. Now for me being a raving pyromaniac and Professionally Qualified Pyrotechnician i love this time of year and can't wait to get my hands on the stuff and set off displays. The reason i do it professionally all stems from the fact that i love fireworks and i also love hearing other peoples reactions to the displays that i have done.
    So far this year i have done a few displays with the latest being at Ascot Racecourse on Saturday.

    Now what are other peoples views on Fireworks and what do you for Firework kicks, do yo have your own small display at home or go to an organised one (Personally as well as firing organised displays i also do a 'Home' one).

    I am open to all opinions so please don't hold back on your views, baring in mind that you should keep to the rules of the forum

    I am a big fan of organised displays. Especially if it is set to music! Sadly my son how is autistic will not go within a mile of a firework. Every year at this time we spend many an hour right underneath a duvet with him holding his hand and trying to stop him from suffocating! As you can imagine, staying at the parks for Wishes or Illumintions or whatever the display is at DLRP is a no no and we always have to make sure we are out of the car park long before they start. This is another reason we can't stay at any of the DLRP or WDW hotels that are near the action. The problem with Owen isn't so much the fireworks as the noise.

    I love fireworks in an organised display, we are lucky to go to one organised by the air force every year. I don't think they should be sold to joe public though. Charlie loves to watch them out of the window!!

    Is it true you can't buy fireworks in Ireland for home use?

    Cranwell,


    i prefer bonfire night fireworks to be without music personally. But i love fireworks set to music on other occasions.
