Spineless Wonders – 5th November 2012

Are you celebrating Guy Fawkes Night in your neck of the woods?

Enjoy those fireworks and stay safe. I feel the need to state the obvious, but take extra care of your pets. It can be a very stressful time for them!

      Lol. Guy Fawkes Night aka Bonfire Night is a British thing. Way back in the day GF tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament in what was known as the Gunpowder Plot. He was foiled. His punishment was to be burned at the stake. Hundreds of years later, Brits still celebrate – there’s this little rhyme: “Remember, remember, the fifth of November.” Children will often shout “Penny for the Guy”, or at least they used to when I was wee. They basically wanted a donation so that they could buy more wood/fireworks or spend the money on improving their Guy Fawkes doll/creation, which would later be burnt on the top of the bonfire… It’s quite macabre, really. But it’s just a tradition. πŸ™‚

    Not an event that’s celebrated here in the Statesβ€”it would probably interfere with Halloween! πŸ™‚

      That’s true, actually. Maybe that’s why so few people engage so readily in the festivities on the 31st. They’re too skint after buying lots of fireworks! lol!

    Can you believe it. It has been banned here in Melbourne. Seriously.

      So me asking you if you’re kidding would be redundant. 😦 That’s awful! Do you have another celebratory occasion that’s particular to Australia or even Melbourne? πŸ™‚

        Well we have “Cup Day” which we get a day off work and school for.
        I posted it under “some hats are keepers” but we usually head off for the beach that day and play with the children. When I was a kid (before the big banning) we had Guy Fawkes celebrations and bonfires. It was fun.

        Cup Day, that sounds weird (Mind you, as soon as I hear Cup, I think Tea. I’m sure that’s not the connection here!). It’s funny the things that people do away with… very strange. πŸ™‚
