Default Bonfire night

It's the 5th of November and that means fireworks, a big fire, soup and hot dogs and a few bevvies.
​​​​​​Good old Col is having a few fireworks...

Are you allowed to have your own fireworks or have the fun police banned that as well?

Yeah anyone can buy fireworks as long as they are old enough or carry ID. The minimum is 18 or perhaps 21, I`m not sure.

That's great as I have fond memories of Cracker Nighr where our family built a Bonfire and we let off crackers and rockets...
all banned now as everything else which is to protect us from ourselves!........RUBBISH!

Some places take it more seriously than others.

When my older brother and I were kids our dad ran a factory and our mum ran the village VG shop.
They sold fireworks in the shop and after bonfire night we had all of the left over fireworks, our Dad would let them off for us.
It took 3 nights one after another.
Happy days

Talking about elf and safety, we had hand held fireworks, not sparklers but actual fireworks with a small wooden handle at one end!
