SIR, — As a child, how I looked forward to November 5 as Fireworks Night or Bonfire Night and I would be the last person in the world to prevent today s children from enjoying such fun. But it was Fireworks or Bonfire Night, and it was on November 5.
SIR, - As a child, how I looked forward to November 5 as "Fireworks Night" or "Bonfire Night" and I would be the last person in the world to prevent today's children from enjoying such fun. But it was Fireworks or Bonfire Night, and it was on November 5. That is the date.
I am sorry to read how many firework displays were spoiled by the inclement weather last weekend - and, it seems, this weekend also - but why do people seem to think that it is perfectly acceptable to celebrate just when it suits them? Animals, for instance, often suffer greatly from the loud explosions, and it seems they must hold their ears for days on end just to suit the whims of people who bend the rules for their own convenience.
Perhaps these cretins will next decide that Christmas on December 25 just doesn't suit their lifestyle.
