Why not go to a proper firework display and see some decent ones? That makes more sense to me than a couple of puny rockets and catherine wheels. And don't forget the 'Roman Candle' with its traffic light display!
Chris Branch, when we used to have one we used to spend boat loads on fireworks, we had no puny pathetic fireworks, it was proper show. I personally think a bonfire at home is much better than a big one, you have got your mates and family around, and if you get cold you can go inside , and theres usually free hot dogs, jacket potatoes and CURRY! YAY!
Plus i believe we have the right to celebrate it without going to shoddy state controlled ones without curry.
Sure, it's fine if you've got the money to do that/you've got enough people coming, just don't go sending the rocket into the house and messing up your kitchen. Those burn marks are a right pain to get rid of.
