Just too scary!

Last night I found myself shouting at the TV!!!! Boy, I never thought that I'd do that. But *steps-onto-soapbox.....briefly* I would like to point out to the idiots at the BBC - particularly the local South/East broadcasters that Bonfire night is the 5th November - always has been. The rhyme never went 'Remember, remember the 3rd of November' - did it? Bunch of moronic fuckwits!!!

The plastic female presenter stated that the weather was perfect/lovely for Bonfire night and then wished everyone a safe Bonfire night....tonight! WTF - when did it change? Just because a percentage of the population for social events and ease let off their fireworks on the 3rd - does not make it Bonfire night.

I hereby categorically remind all fuckwits - moronic or otherwise - November 5th is Bonfire Night!!!

*climbs down off of soapbox, clears throat, straightens hair and goes off to eat breakfast*

Christie - Bonfire Night is when we celebrate the Gunpowder Plot against James I of England (VI of Scotland) Gun Fawkes amongst others attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliment when King James was there to open parliment, the plot was foiled and the conspirators tried for treason and executed. Every year on 5th Nov we have bonfires and let of lots of fireworks.

Hope that helps explain what I was ranting about? ;-)

The historian in me is appalled. I shudder and cringe at the thought of randomly moving dates around.
