    Not anymore I don`t no, but years ago when I was young we always used to have a bonfire at home, mum used to do use jacket potatoes and soup. I might actually do that this year if my husband is home. I have come over all nostalgic thinking back to those days:)

    we have sparklers too and fireworks but only the small garden stuff, wouldnt want to scare local wildlife. IMO the bigger stuff should only be on one night at organized displayed. *gets off fireworks soapbox*

    Please check for hedgehogs in the bonfire before you light it..good practise is to move the bonfire to another area before you light to ensure no hog has made it it's home..:)
