"I just got back from the Auto de Fe!"

"Auto de fe? What's the auto de fe?"

"It's what you oughtn't to do but you do anyway!"

- History of the World, Part I
I probably shouldn't have done it, as there is still a ban on burning (as far as I know), but I took all reasonable precautions.
To honor the Solstice, belatedly of course, I set up a small but intense bonfire and immolated eleven years worth of financial records into fine white ashes. Try to piece that shit together, identity thieves!

Naturally, I didn't burn the tax records.

After burning all the paperwork, I poured out three libations into the fire and let it burn further before extinguishing it. No, I didn't dance naked around it, sorry.
