We all love the autumn, the warm yellows, oranges, golds and rusty leaf colours, conkers, pumpkins, Strictly and X-Factor, Halloween, Guy Fawkes, Bonfire Night, fireworks parties and of course the intense thrill and anticipation of Christmas.

This time of year is a treat for the senses and great fun, but it can be scary and we must keep ourselves and our families safe.
Halloween is celebrated on the night of the 31st October, the eve of All Saints' Day. It is often celebrated by children dressing up in frightening masks and costumes. Halloween is thought to be associated with the Celtic festival Samhain, when ghosts and spirits were believed to be abroad.
On the 5th November people remember the plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament by celebrating ‘Bonfire Night’. All over Britain there are firework displays and bonfires with models of Guy Fawkes, which are burned on the fire. It commemorates the ‘Gunpowder Plot’ in 1605. English Catholics were angry because the King of England, James the First, was treating them badly. In November a group of men led by Guy Fawkes, made a plan to blow up the Houses of Parliament in London. An enormous explosion was planned for November 5th. This was the day that the King was due to open Parliament. The fireworks are a reminder of the gunpowder that Guy Fawkes and his co-conspirators hid in the cellar of Parliament.
‘Remember, Remember the 5th of November, Gunpowder, Treason and…’ ARSON
Unfortunately, there is a negative side to Halloween and Bonfire Night. There is always an increase in harm caused by fires and fireworks. Some of these incidents affect the home. The letterbox of each home tends to be vulnerable to arson attack.
