It's dark and cold and your stood in a crowd buzzing with anticipation.
Whether it's a small garden bonfire with family and friends or a big organised event it's always exciting.
When the first flames start reaching for the sky I can feel my cheeks start to glow with the warmth, the smell and the crackling sound of the fire reminds me of standing in the back garden as a kid watching dad light up the treasured box of Standard fireworks. I don't remember him ever getting a catherine wheel to spin!!!.
These days it's a different story. With fantastic organised events and fireworks that are out of this world Bonfire Night has turned into a family trip out.
