This is exactly just like what I remember leading up to bonfire’s night.. all of us in our gang took turns to guard our pile at night!! You see if we didn’t, well it used to get burned down.. coz each gang in every street wanted the biggest fire in town
Eeh I absolutely loved that pile of rubbish,us kids collected weeks before bonfire night.. it’s amazing what people gave us.. things just to get set alight!!
There were fine ornaments and toys and some things we used to keep.. haha we were like rag-a-muffin nippers scavenging thru the heap.. but never-the-less on November the fifth.. come rain or sleet or shine.. a guy was lit ontop of our fire that lit up the skyline
What an annual celebration.. adults and children alike.. I recall straight after school I raced in excitement with my bike.. to join in the festivities eating toffee apples and hot dogs sitting by the blazing fire dodging sparks from crackling logs.. alas this is but a distant memory.. noone does this now.. ‘Health and Safety’ would have a fit if they did.. there would be hell on ‘Holy Cow!!!’
