December is here again and I have every cause to be worried because of the habit of some people during this period.

The kids in my neighbourhood are having fun by displaying fireworks here and there. Some become busy with alcohol while others engage in any kind of adventure, just to catch the fun of Christmas and not feel left out.

What I hate most and I find difficult to endure is the habit of displaying some kind of fireworks called knock-outs; which causes some kind of noise when it explodes. The kids light up these sticks and when there is fire on the tip, they then throw it towards any direction they fancy.

This is one of my worst seasons of the year because I am greatly disturbed by all these. Even when you call the kids and warn them of the health hazards it could cause, because of its smell(the chemical constituents) and noise; not to throw it anywhere near your house, some mischievous kids from somewhere who lacked parental control would always defile your warning and dare you. No matter how serious you have threatened to arrest them, they always call your bluff.

That being as it is some adults too, who have missed some part of their childhood adventure would encourage the kids on this adventure. Some of these adults also indulge themselves in it. Around this time last year, there was this case of some adults who enjoyed this mischief by driving their cars in another neighbourhood and throwing the knock-out fireworks in the direction of strangers and then laughed mischievously at the reactions of their victims and then sped off in their automobile.

The knock-out doesn’t cause much harm, but it could result in some bodily burns on the skin on impact. The worst offense of all is the deafening noise and some shock it causes when it explodes.

I look forward to the next January, when this entire craze about Christmas would have been done with.
