/\ I don't have an explanation for that photo /\ I guess I was bored!
So, in the UK, there is a tradition called 'Bonfire Night'. You can look it up for more info and history on the matter!
So, basically, every year - on the 5th of November - the UK is filled with 'bonfires' and fireworks. The night before bonfire night is 'mischievous Night' - where people go around being mischievous - so, it's best to stay indoors if you're over here on the 4th of November! It reminds me a little bit of 'The Purge' (but, obviously no where near as dramatic!)!
So, I went to a Bonfire and it was soooooo busy!
My hair and makeup wasn't anything special:
Most people wear scruffy clothes to a bonfire, so I didn't wear anything too bright!
When we were at the bonfire, it was soooooo busy! It was at a country pub - how could it have been so busy?! It was hard to get to the bar for drinks. When we got our drinks, we walked to the area with the bonfire and firework display. The fireworks were so good!
Anyway, after the fireworks finished, we walked up to the bonfire. I noticed that 2 of my nails were missing, so I walked back to where I was stood when watching the fireworks. I was looking on the floor and a woman noticed and said "Have you lost a nail?" I said I had so she whipped out a GIGANTIC torch to lighten up the floor and shouted:
"This girl has lost a nail! She's lost a nail! This girl's lost one of her nails!"
So then there was a whole crowd of people looking for my nails!
It was soooo embarrassing! >_< I just said:
"Oh, no, no, no! It's fine! I have many more, it's ok! Thank you though!"
I didn't even get a good photo of them:
The hands were 2 colours.
Neton was cold all night, I wasn't that cold - I think my hair kept me warm!:
So, we went to the local pub afterwards - we were in time for the quiz. It was soooo difficult! OMG. I only knew like 2 answers (out of over 60 questions). Luckily, we'd joined a team with some other people this time, so they knew more.
One of the questions was 'What is a group of piglets called'. The acceptable answer was 'A drift'. People kept saying 'A litter' and they were told it was wrong. However, I've looked it up and apparently, it can be either.
That pub has been wrong before too, one question a while ago was something like:
"What is the largest desert?'
The real answer is: 'Antarctica' - which is what we said.
They said we were wrong though, because it's 'The Sahara desert'.
I guess pub quizzes aren't known for their accuracy, anyway! >_< It's still fun to do!
So, we decided that Bonfire night would mark the beginning of Christmas for us. We put up our decorations yesterday!
The tree is too big to fit anywhere! So, we had to put it there, oh well!
This Christmas banner has a spelling error!:
'Merry Chrastmas' - and the 'A' is half cut off too!
Amethysts bed looks so cosy now! She likes looking out of the window from it!
We drank sherry, listened to Christmas songs, watched Christmas films and lit the fireplace! People say I celebrate too early but I love Christmas too much!
Until next time, bye bye! <3
