Bonfire Night

well i would love to see the old traditional bonfire night come back...the making of the guy and standing outside the pub or papershop with him collecting our firework money was a must.. then collecting anything we could find that wasnt nailed down and piling it up in the back garden to make our bonfire then clmbing up to sticking the guy on the top. and praying it didnt rain....but most of all i miss the smells..the smell of the smoke from the chimneys and the smell of sulpher from all the fireworks that were let off... and then down came the smog...oh and the smell of baked spuds in the oven...mom always did us proud and mom would shout....put a glove on like the sparklers dont burn you....such a shame that the children of today cant experience the excitement we had on bonfire night..ahh well they were happy days...and days which i have recalled many times to my children...
