Fireworks on November 5th

There were no large public firework displays advertised on November 5th. (There are two on Saturday: one at Dalton Barracks, and one near Long Furlong Community Centre.)

There are some new Christmas Lights on the Market Place that look a bit like fireworks.

The Millenium needle does look like a Roman Candle, and there were plenty of distant explosions in the night sky.

Waitrose could have been one huge bonfire - using a long exposure.

And HSBC may well have been on fire. One of the fire engines stayed for a couple of hours.

i'm sure in not the only atheist who is happy to celebrate christmas - not for religious reasons but because it's a time that allows families to get together - maybe for the only time in a year.
ever since i got past say... 15 years old my best christmas memories are not the gifts but the family fun.
