16 Tasks of the Festive Season - Square #2: November 5th


Tasks for Guy Fawkes Night: Post pictures of past or present bonfires, fireworks (IF THEY’RE LEGAL) or sparklers. –OR– Host a traditional English tea party, or make yourself a nice cup of tea and settle down with a good book to read. Which kind of tea is your favorite? Tell us why.




Well, I am not able to attend the fireworks at home this year, but usually I meet up with friends on a small hill at the beach (best place to view the fireworks!). We enjoy some chips and a hot drink, and then watch the fireworks and the other people around us ... there are people who bring sparklers, there are lots of kids, there are charity firewalks, there is music - it's always good fun. The fireworks are not that impressive and, usually, something will go wrong - last time, they set off the works before the countdown had finished! - which just adds to the enjoyment of it all.


As I don't live far from the main venue, we usually return to my place afterward and catch up over some tea.
