  4. Mvp,go and do your research on traditions then come back again.Not everything which impacts on our christmas as traditions are healthy and good.Rum is in our christmas tradition,does that makes it good?No!bamboo bursting can trigger a person to death if they are suffering with a heat-attack.It has happen before in Laborie.

  5. You see how some of us don't read properly.I never compared the sound of bamboo bursting with a gun.What does the word substitute means?Politicians will always take some of us for a ride.

  7. We were not thinking of guns in years gone some of us in our late 50s early 60s just watching was great fun.The bamboo cannon never sounded like a gun shot

  8. I never enjoyed such thing as culture.Found that,to be an irritating noise which could be a substitute to bursting gun shots by young men these days.
