Let us just say that my Midwest conservatism leaves me a bit ambivalent about this post. I keep thinking I have mentioned this trend before but cannot find the post (if there was one). I can see the sense of a divorce party (and I suspect there have been many more long before the British made it popular but probably lacking the bonfire). Why it is here?
