    Can you please tell me
    The link between bonfires and
    Halloween? I'm stumped.


    Next week is Bonfire
    Night when we commemorate
    The Gunpowder Plot.
    I suppose its local tradition but we always have a bonfire on Halloween and fireworks on guy Fawkes (sometimes with another bonfire).
    and the pumpkins come out for both.

    .
    Bonfires are not just used in Winter celebrations... in much of Europe there are fire-feasts in April for Walpurgis Night, or St John's Eve:

    "...30 April is pálení čarodějnic ("burning of the witches") or čarodějnice ("the witches") in the Czech Republic. Huge bonfires - as tall as 8 metres - are built and burnt in the evening, preferably on top of hills. Young people gather around. Sudden black and dense smoke formations are cheered as "a witch flying away". As evening advances to midnight and fire is on the wane, it is time to go to search for a cherry tree in blossom. Young women should be kissed past midnight (and during the following day) under a cherry tree. They "will not dry up" for a year long. First May is celebrated then as "the day of those in love"."

    Hallowe'en was not
    The big thing when I was young.
    It's American.

    Or at least making
    A big commercial thing of
    Trick or treating is.

    Bonfire night was great.
    I guess we are all more scared
    Of fire and bangs now.

    Being frightened has
    become sanitised and safe
    through silly costumes.

    You need a big sign that says
    'Beware of the pig.'
