Those Fireworks x

I remember firework night 2009 so clearly..
One moment in particular..

We were at the St Albans firework display with everyone.. 7:30pm.. just like every other year..
The same group of people.. my friends.. my second family..
All huddled up together in the freezing cold, in amongst thousands of other freezing people.. wearing our 6 layers, thick coats, gloves, scarves and woolly hats..
All staring at the sky..

Watching the Fireworks..

This moment in particular occurred just minutes before the end..
The last song ended.. and the fireworks paused for a moment..
And then it began to play.. The penultimate song of the evening..

Sigur Rós - Hoppípolla

And the fireworks started again..
And the massive crowd.. full of children, teenagers, adults, and the elderly..
Every person fell silent..
Almost in a wave.. the field of once rowdy people.. stopped talking..
And every person stood, staring at the sky..
At the lights that drifted slowly to the ground in a shower of glitter..
Beauty and Peace..
Just Incredible.

That was my best bonfire night x

Remember, Remember, the 5th of November..
