I've really pushed the boat out this year and bought my kids a packet of sparklers.

They don't celebrate it here. No one I asked knows why. I deduced it was because Guy Fawkes tried to kill James I and his grandson turned out to be the converted Catholic James II who got beat off King Billy at the Battle of the Boyne - hence neither 'side' has much to shout about over it.

I'm surprised the 'Prods' don't celebrate it tbh. Fawkes and his cohorts were Catholics and their actions did more damage to Roman Catholocism in UK than anything else in the 17th century.

Aye but further down the blood line you have James II (a Catholic) aka the old pretender then Bonnie Prince Charlie (another left-footer).

Which is why Prince Chuck will be George 7th (or whatever it is) instead of creating havoc in claiming to be KC III (as the Jacobytes claim B.P.Charlie is/was).

 

Apologies for this, peeps. I will waffle no more.

:( trying to keep my dog under control as every time a firework goes off he goes ape-shit !!! Fuckin hate bonner night !!

 

 

Mine's locked in the cupboard under the stairs as I type. :razz:

 

Forgot to get him some sedatives from the pet shop and paid the price yesterday. Came in late from having Sunday lunch at my mam's house to find some quirky students setting off fireworks in the back lane. The fallout of this was Floyd had pissed himself and tried to dig his way out through the carpet (again), so I've now got a blood stained, piss smelling, passage carpet with a hole in it.

 

Hopefully moving in 6 months so I'm going to stick some wood flooring down for durability and cheapness :D
