Bright Lights and Loud Noises

Bonfire Night is going "on and on and on" like an ABBA song.  I remember in the 1960's when bonfire night was on the evening of the 5th of November only, whatever the weather.  As children, we all understood the significance of the festivities and had sparklers, toffee and a wooden bonfire upon which we roasted chestnuts and potatoes, usually with a guy to burn as well.  Fireworks were only a small but exciting part of the evening.
