    Not true.
    "Christmas" existed before Christ. The church simply stole the pagan festival date to eradicate pagan traditions.

  • the reason it occurred is political, but calling it guy fawkes night is not. the whole event is political so calling it anything is political is it not? we are celebrating the anniversary of an political event, that is unless you use it as a celebration of the pagan links of fire and regeneration and samhain and all that

    Nothing.
    Having a bonfire to burn rubbish, set of some fireworks, roast some tatties and drink a few beers.
    Just for the fun of it.
    I could do it any week of the year but the firemen are more lenient on that week.

    If you dont inform them first, yes. The bonfire part. Fireworks are okay, and do get let off at various occasions.
    If they get hauled out of their pits to come put out a fire theirs every chance they will do just that in revenge.

  • Kids going round with the guy in a trolley or wheel barrow collecting money - did that actually ever happen or was it just something they showed on telly programmes?

    it did, back in my old mans day. i remember my bro and couisns and me making, or helping mum and auntie make us a guy in the early 90;s but that was just chucked on top of the fire on the 5th.

    Yup. If someone reports it.
    Consequences depend on mood of chief officer and arsyness of arsonists. :wink:
    Generally you do get off with it. Best to phone in advance for a planned bonfire.
    Definition of bonfire in this case - Flames over 6 feet high. Not just a few branches.
