We were all ready to release the Chinese Lanterns this evening, when I had a thought.
And the thought was - what a bloody stupid idea.
They serve no earthly purpose other than to be a bit pretty.
They are out of control.
They kill wildlife.
They kill farm animals.
Frankly, they're pretty well a form of freelance arson.
So we lit a few tea lights instead. At least they don't kill cows.
