A suitable song to greet Bonfire Night, with Jon’s best wishes as he says, “Happy Bonfire Night! Fire on the common for me. No Guy though – that always freaked me out as a kid.” I can’t help but agree with the sentiment there as the burning of the Guy always seemed to be a little gruesome to me. These days of course it’s all organized displays, apart for the Herberts who’ll be letting them off at random for the next month as the unsold stock is discounted down! Mind you there’s generally more to these traditions that we are told as kids and this Mainly Norfolk link to the Watersons has sleeve notes that make the link to older traditions. Wiki here for more on Bonfire Night itself. Enjoy the festivities and stay safe.
