I think it comes as no coincidence that Diwali - the HinduFestival of Lights, and Bonfire Night - the celebration of the failure of a 400 year old terrorist plot, are celebrated around the same time each year. Both signify the victory of good over evil. Both are celebrated with lights and fireworks.
We prefer not to buy fireworks at home and instead choose to go to one of the many public fireworks displays dotted around the country at this time of year. This year, as part of our role as blogger ambassadors, we went to Drayton Manor Theme Park and Thomas Land for their spectacular fireworks display.
