    Yes, if it's keeping people awake, especially kiddies!

    Wow. Ok. Now I remember why I rarely post on here anymore.

    BH confuses me. So many people complain that they have no social life or that their family sucks or that they are lonely in the various threads. Yet they are up in arms about other people enjoying the same things.

    I don't crack tantrums when people have loud Xmas lunches that disturb my or my kids nap, which believe me we all desperately need to have a good Xmas. Nor do I get offended when other people have music playing that may offend my sensibilities. I especially don't get upset when people have parties loud enough to wake my kids, no matter what reason.

    Life's about enjoying the moments. I think I'm going to enjoy mine now.

    Cheers and happy new year to you all. But then I'd expect you all to be upset that people have NYE parties and that fireworks go off.

    Past midnight, yes. Be it an engagement or birthday party singing Taylor Swift or Christmas carols at 2am, it is selfish. Why should everyone been kept awake by it?

    If your next door neighbour is having a party at 2am belting out AC/DC keeping you awake would you have the same view?

    I don't think anyone is meaning to offend, certainly not to the point you leave? But having no social life and having a group of people waking your baby at 2am singing carols are apples and oranges. As is a Christmas lunch. NYE parties at 2am that wake your kids are no different.

    And TBH the reason I come on here less and less is bc people can't handle a difference of opinion. The OP asked if others thought singing carols at 2am is rude. Most felt it was. No reason for people to get offended.

    Usually I'm quite understanding of people's parties. The occasional late night celebration, big party on NYE - no worries. I find it annoying but understand and accept other people's right to enjoy themselves. Christmas Eve is the exception. It's pretty common knowledge that *most* people have a big day planned for Christmas and kids need sleep as they get up early all excited. It's the one night I expect people to shut the F up!

    Before everyone gets their knickers in a knot...it's actually against the law to be making that much noise after midnight on a weekend, and 10pm during the week. It doesn't matter what time of the year it is. My dad worked 7am-7pm Christmas Day in a job that is potentially dangerous. He needs to be well rested. Lots of people work Christmas Day.
    Regardless...I'd be annoyed being woken at 2am Christmas morning. I only manage about 4 hours sleep and we go until midnight Christmas night. It's just common courtesy to be respectful to your neighbours.

    Whilst I wouldn't of put it as bluntly at this I do think it's kinda sad that people do get up in arms and can't let things like noise and lack of sleep slide for a few times a year. Living so close to neighbours all involves compromise on both sides.

    I'm an early bird and despise noise late at night. But I'm sure night owl neighbours would not like my kids being up at 6am squealing and playing with outside with their toys either.

    Thank god I live in a neighbourhood where we all give and take.

    And for those who say well it's Christmas Eve, we need to up early and driving, who's to say that other neighbours don't need to do the same on any other day of the year for whatever reason?

    And the op was complaining about 1030pm (sorry, 11pm) this year! Hardly a biggie once a year.

    I get that things get annoying and on top of people. Especially when us with little ones like our routines and are desperate for sleep.

    But c'mon...... it's Christmas!!!!
    Live a little, forgive a little!

    I enjoy lots of moments. Just not at 2am.

    Having said that, occasional noise does not bother me.
