I heard something about this recently, and I still have no idea what it's about. The only holiday around this time of year is Thanksgiving, and not even that down there.

I blame the whole thing on Hallmark. Capitalist bastards making up imaginary holidays to sell more cards and gifts!:shoot:

Bonfire night is a proper holiday, none of this wussy eating stuff and playing board games.

You live in England. We understand that you have nothing to be thankful for.

I don't understand why they have "boss's day" and "sweetest day" so close to each other. My boss might get the wrong idea (if I had a job).

Might help if people knew why they were buying cards and gifts.

Bosses day and Sweetest day? Fucks sake. Card companies are getting desperate.

Bonfire night is a great holiday. You get to burn effigies and blow shit up.

My mum used to work for Hallmark cards. Didn't need to buy a single card for years and used them as memo pads etc...

Much, much bigger deal in the US than it is in the UK.

We burn them in effigy on bonfire night. Bloody foreigners.
