Senoufou BS: Halloween (105* d) RE: BS: Halloween 20 Oct 20

The weekend of Halloween (ie Saturday 31st October) will be handy for people to 'do' their Guy Fawkes/Bonfire Night as well (maybe on the Sunday, 1st November) The 5th November is on a Thursday, but the weekend will be favourite.
We have a brand new plastic oil tank containing 800 litres of inflammable kerosene. Luckily it's 'bunded' (has one tank inside another) which protects it a bit from fireworks. But there are always fires around the UK on Guy Fawkes' Night. The poor firemen have all their leave cancelled and get stones hurled at them when they extinguish any out-of-control fires in the streets etc.
It's all excessive in my opinion, and limiting it to public displays would save a lot of accidents, burns and trouble.
Our neighbours have been to Algy's pumpkin farm and come home with lots of massive pumpkins to carve. They always put a giant rope 'cobweb' on a tall bush with ... yes...a horrible hairy spider about three feet across. I can't look out of our front window without shuddering. But it's just fun, and their children get so excited.
