Humans are amused, but what of the animals?
Horses? Freaked out for first five years, but calm as can be now.
Dogs? Freaked out for first holiday, but calm as can be now.
Chickens? How could such flighty fiends survive the night without having their heads explode from terror? Calm and relaxed. The little beggars were more upset that I came into the coop to look at them than they were about the racket.
Chickens. Will I ever understand them?
