Remember, remember the 5th of November

Part of the reason Autumn is the next best season after Christmas, is all the wrapping up warm and still managing to be sociable – and Bonfire Night is one of the key nights to do this. No matter where I am I love to see fireworks, and so it’s great that in the UK we have a night dedicated to them to commemorate the night in 1605 Guy Fawkes (a Catholic) and his team were unsuccessful in blowing up King James I and the Houses of Parliament: now referred to as the Gun Powder Plot.

Each year us Brits light up the sky with fireworks, and have burning bonfires in gardens, fields, parks; and this year I went to the Bath Rotary Club Fireworks Display at ‘The Rec’. With food, drink, music and great fireworks, it was a lovely evening.

Fireworks really are great, and if you can’t be bothered, or don’t have the space, for your own fireworks, the displays set up in communities have a lot of effort put into them. Sparklers are also a great addition to this night – creating your own mini creations with this hand-held firework (writing your name with it is a must).

No. 1 tip for attending any sort of firework display (besides the obvious: keep safe!), is to wrap up warm! Fluffy socks recommended to keep toes warm.
