Noisy Color Lights


Laurel unfortunately has learned about fireworks by being woken up by local displays, and during the latest show, I could understand her distress. Given the proximity of the show, her bedroom was awash in bursts of bright light and noise.

Tomorrow's fireworks are well past Laurel's bedtime but I’m contemplating either keeping or waking her up to remove the element of surprise and show her that the “noisy color lights” are safe from a distance. Check out Boston’s classic festivities, or explore event listings in Greater Boston and the suburbs, and throughout New England.
