No, I'm not against people celebrating the New Year, but I hate all the noise. My little dog goes bananas when she hears all the bangs. I have to give her tranquilizers. My neighbors shoot their fire crackers all night long!
I feel fortunate enough to live in the sticks then. I haven't had to many annoying neighbors firing them off around us. If they did, my dog would go nuts too. She hates the noise. A movie sounds like a great idea for ringing in the New Year.
Most years (including this year) it is too dry in South Texas, so we are under restrictions to prevent fire. Fire works can only be shot off in designated areas. We just go out in the back yard, and we can see the fireworks from Six Flags- with minimal noise.

As a guest was leaving I was going to bring out a bag of trash (because I don't really like going out in the dark yard alone). There are woods around my street, and we have all the usual woodland creatures (and...
We own 5 dogs in all, one Doberman, two terrier-maltese and 2 mixed-breed puppies. Our two terrier-maltese dogs always react negatively whenever they here fireworks or firecrackers going off. Last New Year, they almost...
Just realised I hit the 2,000,000 viewings on my hubs some time between New Year's Eve and the early hours of New Year's Day (here in Britain). Really delighted as it has only been about 10 months since I hit 1,000,000.
