The ceremonial burning of a mermaid

It's Canada, it's Thanksgiving, and that can only mean one thing.... time to burn a mermaid!! Well, perhaps not a traditional Thanksgiving pastime, but it's how we spent our afternoon today. A carved wooden mermaid, bought long ago on a beach in Mexico, was past her best, with a broken tail and two broken arms, so it was time to put her out of her misery. Down to the fire-pit at the bottom of the garden we went, and a toasty time was had by one and all!! :o)
