Bonfire Night alternative

Sadly, Bonfire Night (November 5) large firework displays are the latest lockdown casualty since you are not allowed to mix with people outside your household or support bubble 
(or at most one person from another household).  Three ways to celebrate while complying with the new rules:

Garden Fireworks — While you can set off set off fireworks in your garden until midnight on Bonfire Night (until 1 am on New Year's Eve, Diwali and Chinese New Year) and 11 pm all other times, you are not allowed to set them off in public places (ie parks, street or woodlands). Fines can be run up to £5,000 or six months in prison. 
Note : Stock up now since members of the public are only allowed to purchase fireworks until November 10th, December 26th - 31st or three days before Diwali and Chinese New Year.

Hummingbird Bakery : Fireworks Cupcakes — Hummingbird Bakery has a special box of six firework themed cupcakes (three red velvet cheesecake and three chocolate) for £19.95 on offer. Gluten-free and vegan boxes are also available — order now for pick up until November 7th.

Monty Bo Jangles : Berry Bubbly Truffles — Monty Bo Jangles decadent Berry Bubbly truffles are filled with popping candy that explode in your mouth. Two 150 g boxes are £6.80 (regularly £8.50) or splurge for a trunk full of truffles (includes 8 other flavors) is £29.99 (regularly £40).  While non-essential travel is discouraged, the decorative box that resembles a piece of luggage will at least give you the feeling of going somewhere.
Note : Sale on 100 g and 150 g boxes runs until Sunday via Amazon.

While the saying is 'Remember, remember, the fifth of November' . . . 'Should ever be forgot . . . ' — like so many other things, 2020 might be the one exception!
