They started around here last weekend ! It`s not so bad from 9 - 11 PM , but at 2 AM ....give me a break ! :rant:Thanks Tommy, very cool! Now, I get no sleep for two days, because my local patriots want to blow shit up. I should be French.
Seriously. I love the French, get me the hell out of here....
Thank you ! I don`t do fireworks anymore so i`ll l;eave that to the younger generation .Happy July the 4th to our US witchers! Enjoy the day off, and be careful with the fireworks!
Now that your're talking about old and odd traditions, do the rest of you have bonfires and fireworks on Halloween? I know we do and don't ask me why, I've never understood why we do that over here!Yeah, this fireworks thingie doesn´t make much sense...
Why don´t you celebrate by remembering old traditions and throw crates full of tea to the sea?? :troll:
I bet all the dads give you candy laced with rufies.I enjoy Halloween. Usually I'll fire up a game like Amnesia, watch horror flicks and cook up a traditional Scandinavian meal, which seems fitting for the fall weather. Then I dress up like a ballerina and go trick or treating. People just love my ballerina suit.
The "tea parties" were a phenomenon brought on by the mess that the East India Company made of the 18th C. trade in tea.Hey, blame your ancestors!! They did the tea crates dumping! :harhar:
I just mentioned that odd liberty-celebrating tradition... :troll:
The real problem was the attempt to give the East India Company a monopoly on tea. The fact that it was taxed (at 5d/lb, just a twelfth of what the English paid) was used as justification for the boycott, but the real reason was the blow to independent merchants and smugglers. Smuggling tea was big business in the 18th Century.Yeah, but wasn´t the Boston Tea Party mainly provoked by the new tax imposed by the British crown to tea sales in the colonies? That´s what eventually led to the Independence War and, thus, to the July 4th fireworks.
But this is the inn, where we talk about anything and everything BUT games ...Right, enough of these country topics! I'm going to finally give The Witcher 1 another chance. I'm starting a new game on Easy mode just to get the story and port it over to my next playthrough of The Witcher 2. You might not see me for a while! :lol:
