Fireworks at Feria Time

Your correspondent tells us that the ‘bangers/rockets/mortars’ are set off to let people in outlying areas know that the feria is about to start.

This does not tell us why they are set off throughout the day.

I know this applies to my area, where we often have 3 or 4 in rapid succession and then at intervals throughout the day & evening, often until 1:00am.

There doesn’t seem to be any explanation other than, “It’s traditional”!!!




Legal/Illegal TV

Be warned, if you have bought into this scheme, you maybe about to lose your reception, if you haven’t already lost it.
