Remember Remember the 5th November
Gunpowder, treason and plot
We see no reason why Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot
If you are unsure what the 5th November is, here in the UK we celebrate it to remember Guy Fawkes almost blowing up the Houses of Parliament and the King in 1605, because the King was Protestant and they wanted a Catholic King, personally I think if he had succeeded, we might not have such a shit government now.
Anyhow, he failed and we celebrate by letting off a shit ton of fireworks. Loads and loads of fucking fireworks.
The reason there are so many fucking fireworks, is because anyone can buy them in the UK, as far as I know the only regulation is that you have to be over 18 and stop at 11pm, it doesn’t matter how built up the area is and who gives a fuck about wildlife.
I had the great joy yesterday of watching someone set them off on the grassy bit opposite my flat at 10pm, I honestly thought they were going to blow themselves up.
And its not just the 5th, oh no, they go off the weekend before and after that date as well. This year we have them go off this weekend, the previous weekend and I am sure they are going to go off next weekend.
Every year there is a petition that goes round banning the public sale of fireworks. Use them in a public display, but don’t let idiots let them off, without fucking warning.
Literally the only good thing this year was Monkey could watch all 5000 displays from the balcony and even he got bored.
We need more regulations involved, every year some people get hurt because of it, anxious animals are terrified and people with PTSD are left in a mess.
You know what people get when they complain, oh its only one night, but it fucking isn’t it lasts for fucking ages.
Incase you were in any doubt, I fucking hate this time of year
