vonny...As I said in an earlier post, celebrating the "Hanging Drawing and Quartering" of a fellow human being escapes me... but merry Christmas in advance ...

Bonfire night in Chateau Lambousa tonight was great, there was Parkin for sale and a great fireworks display.

Well done Gordon & the British Legion.

A firework has just gone off near by friend's house which frightened her cat so much that she ran out of the cat flap into the road and, was knocked down and now she is dead................

fireworks should be organised events away from towns, too many frightened animals and accidents happening.......

woodspeckie,i lived in the London area so you can imagine how noisy it was there.

shrimp,that is sad about your friends cat,i do think fireworks should be more organised,too many people and animals get hurt every year.

I do think they should be left to the proper organised events and cant see why anyone would pay s for a few poor fireworks when events spend 1000s and get a lot better effect Alton towers were amazing and the loud music when't with it.

Am I missing something here?



I love living in the TRNC and fireworks go off all the time through the summer and for weddings and birthdays and other happy events through the year.

I have pets but they are reassured when we soothe them.



A colourful festival of light in the winter months in the UK, alongside Divali and Hannuka.

Cheerful and bright and enjoyable surely? Noisy perhaps but hell on earth? I think not.



martinD41, I see your point but he was no saint was he? He was planning an explosive end to the king and Parliament so in effect he was planning the first big firework display. Ironic don't you think?

Panochat, if I think it is hell on earth, who are you to dispute that! My little dog died because of fireworks, kindly respect others comments.

No amount of comforting will stop one of my little dogs from shivering all the time whenever fireworks are let off. It really is distressing to see. She was a stray for three years or so before being rescued and no doubt she was traumatised then. It IS hell on earth for her and ironic that those who make all that noise maybe those who complain about barking dogs! Think of all the poor animals with no one to comfort them.



By all means the bonfire and parkin and pretty displays - but surely it is not necessary to have all those bangs.

Without them those of us who care for animals could enjoy the show too instead of having to stay at home to comfort them

Started at 5.30 this evening and still going after midnight!!

We need government action to stop this annual nuisance along with the "halloween" nonsense.

Any suggestions as to how we get the politicians to act!?
