Guy Fawkes Night

I loathe Guy Fawkes Night. It's illegal here to let off fireworks except at organised events, but so many people take no notice. It's a fearful night for animals, with many terrified and going missing. I'm anxious the whole time. Cliffie went off on his nightly jaunt before I could shut him inside.

I think it's daft to commemorate it here in South Africa where very few people have any idea what it's about. I wonder if it's still commemorated in other Commonwealth countries?

I suppose it's also celebrated in Australia?

We used to set a few off when we were kids; I liked sparklers mostly, but hated crackers. You are responsible people though; here people literally let off fireworks in the streets without taking any care and deliberately frighten or hurt animals, as well as people by accident.
