Call me boring but I'll just be treating it as a normal day. I won't be going anywhere or doing anything special. I went to an organized bonfire night in 1999, but nothing since then. Before 99 the last one I went to before that was in 1992.

I do enjoy the thought of Bonfire night. I just never get around to doing anything.

Love Bonfire night.

I'll be going to a huge bonfire they have every year at a park near to where I live. There's nothing like standing in front of a crackling bonfire on a cold November night eating hot Pie & Peas and Hot Dogs while watching the firework displays! :D

Probaly indoors watching the fireworks set off in othjer peoples gardens and making sure the dogs don't get scared. Last firework show I went too resulted in the car getting stuck for an hour in thick mud at Chigwell

Yer Alyssa, its like Bonfires, massive firework shows, toffee apples etc

Even though I live in the UK, I don't celebrate it for it's reason.
I would prfer it if Guy Fakwes had blown up the houses of Parliament. :wve:
Waste of time and money IMO.

Or is it more than that?Yes, it's how we UK residents like to celebrate the execution of a Catholic when his plot to murder our Protestant king was foiled. We do this by burning effigies of him, every year. The fact that this occurred 400 years ago makes no jot of difference of course, because we UK people do so like to indulge in blind prejudice, even if we are Catholic.

Hm, methinks the whole nation needs to learn a lesson: Get over it.

Sorry. A Daria-thing.

Anyhow, I've never heard of this before. We obviously don't do that here, but we do burn bonfires on Midsummer.

Rivendell
03-11-06, 23:33
Lol, notice how we burn effigy's of him in remembrance, even though he was hung, drawn and quatered?

Personally I celebrate the day as an attempt of what he was trying to do, not to celebrate his failure..

Anyway - as usual I'll be at home looking after my petrified and shaking dogs with doses of calming remedy for them.. Poor things hate the bangs.

Did everyone have a nice bonfire night then? mine was lovely, went to a car show, saw a jet powered beetle, fire engine quad bike etc.. Sat and watched the sun set, then the bonfire was lit by the land speed record jet car, followed by fireworks and candy floss.. off out for a lovely meal, then back to an absolutely GORGEOUS hotel where i was surprised with candles pink champagne and a hot tub!

basically i was wined dined and spoilt!

Sounds brilliant, glad you had a great time

a jet powered beetle....I want one :D

I went to a nice little party of some friends of my dads and they set off some fireworks near a warehouse, forgetting the large amount of petroleum that was 40 feet away. And they managed to set off 3 warehouses alarms so it was fun
