Don't know about bonfire night (that's Nov 5, right?!) we don't have such things over here... but we're having a lovely big SpherculHop day in Belfast on Oct 30 biggrin

As many Irish spinners/jugglers and drummers as I can find are taking part in an anti-racism parade on the Saturday afternoon, then having a burn outside the students union on the Saturday night. Woohoo!

There'll be a SpherculHop gathering near you too - check out the events section.

Wayhey for SpherculHop Day!

When else do we get to parade a human effergy around the streets and burn it without being arrested?

There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

I'm supposed to be spinning fire poi naked with Faberge, also naked, on my shoulders, in the vacinty of Buckingham Palace. It appears she has chickened out though, sensible woman.

It's smashing to be back x

grumble, grumble about fireworks night - it used to be a big thing here until the government decided we couldnt be trusted with fireworks in our own backyard

stupid thin is its legal to buy them in a certain state, but not let them off... you can drive over the border to do that illegally ubbloco confused

so all those who celebrate fireworks night - please, please, please, light one for me. My faourite was always the parachute - looking for it was great fun ubbrollsmile hug

On Friday the 5th Nov, I have been given a budget to buy my pub some nice big fireworks and then do some spinning smile

Then on the Saturday I have been asked to do some spinning at a larger display smile

Ade will be sure to let off some big pyro with your name on it!!

As for the parachutes, I managed to get slightly over 100 worth of marine flares for this years festival season, the big one (a parachute flare) got me into trouble though, I hadnt set one off before and didnt realise that as I was laid on my back watching the ~ wooosh ~ pop ~ burn ~ happen above me I was surrounded by a large smoke ring through which a couple of security guards came running to give me a slap on the wrists.

SEC "was that you?"
ME (with big smile on face!) "Well Yeah smile "
SEC "Well can we just say Thanks, but dont do it again or we will have to get the heavies involved!!"
ME "Well OK then." (it was 30, shot to a height of over 300m and was 100,000 candella!)

Hope everyone has an excellent fireworks night,

Trillaian. A fireworks night is a night where fireworks get setoff. it can be i someones back yard or a huge extravaganza orginsed by a company or council. Ususally it refers to the Guy Fawkes celebrations.

It's the bane of my life. Every year on my birthday millions of lunatics set off big scary loud hyperventilating causing bang making fireworks which cause me to get hideuosly drunk in a pub as i'm too scared to walk down the street in case they go off. mad

Lol,
Trillian - Guy Fawkes is the guy who tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament years ago, and the English celebrate his capture every Nov 5 by having a bonfire (usually with a dummy of the man himself on top), and now with fireworks too.

Fireworks were banned in Northern Ireland in the middle of the troubles, the cops didn't like all that loud banging going on around them. Apparently you can get them from licensed traders now, but I don't know any of those.

I'm gonna be blowing things up on the Saturday night with some other overpaid geeks, purely to keep lunernia entertained of course smile

Hopefully we'll both spin a bit of fire poi too... last year one of my friends had a firestaff there, so it's my turn to show off this year.

oh, okay...I've read about Guy Fawkes,(in a fantasy book, actually) but wasn't sure if that was the same as fireworks night...thanks!
