Is it just me or are there way more fireworks than when I was a kid? We went to the Abbey Gardens display every year, and apart from that, you got the occasional sparkler and liked it or lumped it. Besides, it was for kids, so it was mostly over by about 8 o’clock. Now, it’s every night for days beforehand and as for last night – well, at nearly midnight they were still going off. I mean, I like firework displays especially when I didn’t have to pay for them, but doesn’t it seem a teensy weensy bit excessive?
