But Super Bowl, Fourth of July, Etc., and all the hurrahs and fireworks that come with them, are special occasions and long-standing traditions. What kind of world would it be if certain times to which we as a community or nation attach historical and personal significance cannot be recognized and enthusiastically--even loudly enjoyed and celebrated? Life is too hard and stressful not to be able to have some high-volume fun once in a while. Whether it is convenient or desirable for me to hear it on a particular Holiday, I have no intentions of complaining about fire crackers, cheering and even loud music and BBQs going on in honor of a special day or event. It's the ones who have no regard for others about blasting music, stomping and slamming things around overhead, yelling in the streets, and making an overall neighborhood nuissance of themselves at any and all hours as a regular routine for which I have no tolerance whatsoever. The rude indifference and failure to consider that they don't live here by themselves is incomprehensible to me, but at the same time, those who, no matter what the date, insist upon never ever being disturbed by anything other than crickets at night must realize that they don't live here by themselves either. If silence is that essential to your survival and peace of mind, then you probably shouldn't be living in a city.
I wasn't complaining. I was one of those up late making noise!

I'm a transplant who lives uptown. The only thing I complain about - and you best believe I will complain my a@#@#$@# off - is if you are my neighbor and play your music with a subwoofer. Subwoofers have no place in an apartment building. That is all.
