Bonfire Night [Nov. 6th, 2011|10:32 am]
Tony Grist
Last night fizzled and popped, but not as much as usual. I think people are reluctant to put their dwindling resources into coloured fire. Yesterday afternoon we were at our niece's house  to spend time with her new baby. My bro-in-law and Jenny's fiance honoured the season by burning some odd bits of wood on the barbecue.

Definitely not the case down here in BiSto, the explosions went on until well after midnight (and the drunks continued until at least 2.30).

In a way, I'm glad to hear it (I think).....

I have noticed far less use of gunpowder for celebrations here in Spain since the recession (depression?) has the world in its grip. I'm glad. I hate hours and hours of blasts.

We live in an Asian area- where they use fireworks for any and every occasion. I'm getting to be inured to loud bangs.

Spain has a HUGE fireworks tradition and industry as well.

In Aberdeen they seemed undeterred by the financial situation. There were certainly bangs and cracks and fizzles throughout Saturday night, and also on Friday and a few Sunday morning...

We had the same- but not in the usual volume. Bonfire night isn't dead, but I reckon it's dying- or- perhaps- undergoing a slump
