It's fireworks, not gunfire: Halloween in Surrey

After several murders and stabbings since summer it's not unexpected: people are going to make a connection between fireworks and other loud noises.

What sorts of jokes were being bandied about this past halloween and diwali?

@alissasadler I'm in Surrey...cant distinguish between fireworks and gun shots any more :s convinced myself its all part of the festivities

I was just about to send out a very hateful tweet towards the people of Surrey for lighting off fireworks. Then I remembered it's Diwali.

I'm new to #surreybc I guess no fireworks this year! Surrey and Delta have strict conditions for using fireworks.

Info on South of the Fraser River: Surrey, Delta, White Rock, City of Langley, Township of Langley, Fort Langley. Maybe a bit of Abbotsford, just for fun.

This site is experimental. See About (top right) for more, or Blog for meta-information. The working goal is to create an almanac of items, tidbits of information and methods of gathering information.

Right now the site is biased to just south of the Fraser River, within the northern reaches of great City of Surrey, but there is some foraging further afield.
