This post is directed to my British readers…
I would like to know when you will STOP celebrating your little pro-hate free-for-all (a.k.a Guy Fawkes Month Day)?
Two weeks ago, when the fireworks starting going off it was… um, mildly annoying.
Even though our two-year-old son awoke with every pop, bang, and whizz and eventually just stopped sleeping at night entirely, we were willing to overlook it. After all, we ARE guests in your country and mere observers to your culture…
Besides, it would be over soon, right?
When the entire world was celebrating on November 5th and it actually was Guy Fawkes Day/”Bonfire Night,” it was great! Expected. Welcomed. Obviously, we were excited too!
It is FIVE DAYS LATER, people. Why, oh why, are rockets still flaring over our roof every single night? They were going until 2am last night. TWO AM!!!!
I know we live in the kingdom where anti-Catholicism was institutionalized, but really… is it THAT exciting?
Is this going to end soon, or should I consider firing back?
Because I totally will.
