So this is a difficult topic for me. I absolutely love the whole idea of sitting around a bonfire (after you have checked for hedge hogs and other animals). With a warm drink, blankets and good friends. Enjoying some time with friends and paying attention to the reason we have bonfire night.
But that is not what it is any more. Well that is how I feel about it in general. I completely get that people still do this. But in general I think bonfire night is something for the children mainly to watch nice fireworks.
The thing that has absolutely put me of bonfire night is the thought of absolute idiots thinking it is their time to shine by buying fireworks and being stupid. I watched a Facebook video, stupidly , of how a group of young lads had created a fire, called the fire-brigade then proceeded to fire fireworks AT them while they are trying to put it out. Now I am a 20 year old girl. These lads are roughly around my age. People like them make me feel sick. They give younger adults a bad name and make us look like yobs. People like police and fire fighters are giving their lives to help many types of people including the yobs who are trying to hurt them. These yobs are the types of people who are the first to cry, probably literally, if the police or fire brigade do not turn up straight away because they are busy sorting out the problems of people who actually need help. But that is a whole other blog. I shall stop ranting.
I have been sat with my grandparents tonight and they live next to a primary school. A couple of young lads have been camped outside the primary school which is sat next to a main road. Guess what they where doing. Firing fireworks at cars as they past. Police where called and they where sorted but I mean for god sake. Where has peoples common sense gone. I know I am being negative about it and I am not normally a negative person but through out the years more idiots have been created and is really ruining events like these.
I am probably going to be hated for this but I am understanding why they want to ban the selling of fireworks to the public. Yes it ruins families fun. But it keeps many people and many more animals safe. I want to cry but I am going to go to bed. I hope you have had a good day.
