    Remember remember the fifth of November

    So it's that time of year again. Anyone doing anything for it? Visiting the local fireworks spectacle, or burning a Guy at the local bonfire?

    Indeed. Heaps of people from the UK seem to think it's actually a thing here as well though for some reason. Was talking to some ****s yesterday from Gloucester who moved out here recently and they were asking about why we weren't having fireworks shows etc.

    From a Wellingtonian's perspective, I wish they'd ban the private use of fireworks on guy fawkes. Fireworks, northerly gales and drunken ****wits do not mix well. On two separate occasions in the last 10 years, my house has been set on fire by drunk neighbours on or around November 5.
