What are your bonfire traditions? Joules Journal tells you about their top 5.
Find our suggestions below:
1. Build the Fire – collect up any old pallets, bits of timber and garden waste. Make it in the shape of a tipee and keep a place for the Guy on the top.
2. Make a Guy – this represents Guy Fawkes the main conspirator who tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament. Collect some old colths and use a sack or pillowcase for the head, stuff the body with straw and put him on top of the bonfire.
3. Fireworks – prepare the firworks a safe distance for the spectators and enjoy the whoosh, the bang, the bright colours and the glorious spectical of the rockets in the night sky.
4. Food – Hot dogs and toffee apples are a must, they are the traditional food while keeping warm around the bonfire.
5.Keep Warm – the food and the bonfire will keep you warm but also make sure you wrap up warm with a hat, scarf and gloves.
