Seems to think he's very well informed, though CSBS. Unfortunately, he is getting his little facts messed up and getting himself all confused. Funny how some people want to knock everyone else when they are a little deficient themselves.

just proves how childish the celebrations have become.

ah yes, the celebrations indeed have become quite childish TO THOSE WHO SEEK APROVAL FROM MEN, and those who love to be a showoff, they see bonfire as an excuse to be looked at by hundreds and feel special for a night(and a few outfires) before they have to go back to being a regular person who nobody is really interested in, but to those who appreciate the meaning of bonfire and have respect for it and would carry on the celebrations without a single spectator, we have not turned these special celebrations into childish competitions.its those who have no idea what its all about and just want a reason to get 'smashed' that are a discrace to bonfire, and to lewes!!

I bet if there were no crowds to try and impress with your macho barrel burning and torch throwing it would die on it's a**e.
Not before time either it should go the same why as all the other relics from the past like bear baiting.

Unfortunately, you're an idiot, Guido (well, that has never really been in doubt, has it?)
The celebrations aren't about all the costumes and all the fireworks. At their very heart, the celebrations are about taking to the streets and celebrating the deliverence from tyrony, showing that the people Wunt Be Druv. Your're obviously not a fan, so it obviously doesn't hold an interest to you, but to the people to whom it means something, it is very important and for that very reason, long may it continue.
Of course, we could all wrap ourselves in cotton wool and forget we're actually alive, which seem to be what todays society wants.

Well said cliffe boye. However, in these pathetic days of political correctness, and the litigatious society in which we live, I can see bonfire comming under serious threat. Hopefully it will survive, but may have to to sanitised to some extent. This will be a great shame, throwing down an empty cardboard tube and shouting 'bang' won't have quite tyhe same effect.

I would lay you money that if you asked 100 random Lewes residents why bonfire night was such a major event they wouldn't know.
And if it is so important to celebrate a specific day why does it start in October and finish in December?
And why, even 7 years, is it not even held on the correct day?
Just admit it, apart from a few hundred society members, for everyone else it is a chance to throw fireworks around.

Okay, so you're changing your position now. You now seem to be accepting that there are a few hundred (I'd disagree with that low number) people for whom the celebrations mean an awful lot. That means that whatever happens there would be a body of people willing to take to the streets whether there were organised celebrations or not. Not really in the 'die on it's ar*e' area there.
Why does it run from September to end of November (I'm using the dates of the outmeetings there)? Becasue it's fun and a good social activity that many many people find entertaining. Should there need to be any more reason than that to visit nice areas of the county on a Saturday night and make merry?
Why do the celebrations not run on a Sunday (note, that's not every 7 years)? That one is lost in the depths of time I'm afraid, suffice to say, it used to move to the 6th, not the 4th.
Society is all about remembering and celebrating certain events from the past as well as looking to the future, not just a blinkered stumble into a hand-ringing, Diana-ist, Daily Mail fueled 'safe' environment.

Thank you TF and Cliffe boye, to think that in Lewes of all places the home of the bonfire, we should have to defend the tradition! The fact that we are celebrating something from over 400 years ago,does not mean that it has no relevance today!

You blokes amaze me, If you don't enjoy it, piss off and leave the overwhelming majority to get on with having a good time. Its once a year in lewes (give or take a few days) and the shared experience brings a lot more communal joy and local pride to the townspeople than anything else I can think of.

I hope that's not directed at me Smiler as I've been in bonfire for many years and enjoy it just as much now as I've always done. I mearly mentioned the threat it may come under.
