    Can't say I've heard of it.

    We had a couple of Halloween calls this year, but nothing in the last couple of days. Is that a Maritime thing (I was going to say Newfie thing, but I'd probably get cyber slapped eh? )

    Originally its an English thing (Guy Fawkes attempted to blow up the Parliment buildings @350 years ago) But I have asked a couple of English people and they have not heard of anything resembling it happening in England today. Leave it to Newfoundland , the oldest part of North America to keep a 350 year old stupid tradition alive.

    Unhappy Guy fawks

    Hello again smoke.

    Here in the northern part of the UK Guy Fawks night (bonfire night) is very much alive. It is usually celebrated with locally organised bonfires where a dummy of Guy Fawks is usually burned. Fireworks displays go on into the night and the fire service is kept busy during the run up to Bonfire night by arsonists and this year on the night the high winds meant even more business.
