An after Halloween post. We did exactly what I planned for Halloween: nothing special. No candy. No costumes. No party. Nope, for us Halloween is just another day.
In Fairbanks, it isn’t dark enough on the fourth of July to have fireworks so some people have them for Halloween instead. I like fireworks. We usually go to the fireworks at the university on New Year’s Eve. There’s also fireworks for winter carnival. Those displays are usually mid-evening around 8.
My neighbors are another story. We went to bed on Halloween about 930.Well, about 1130 we were awakened to boom, bang. The neighbors were setting off fireworks! Not just firecrackers or sparklers or small ones. These were big areals. Did I mention it was 1130 at night? That went on for about 15 minutes. Some were loud enough they shook my house.
