A week before Guy Fawkes night a committee is elected to organise the celebration. On Guy Fawkes day, members of the community go out into the woods to collect wood for the fire, the committee then makes a bonfire – the size of the fire depends on how much wood we collect. We often make an effigy to go on the fire. In the evening, we light the fire, eat soup, drink hot chocolate, watch fireworks and light sparklers. Kids often propose that they can stay up later to sit around the fire until the early hours of the morning.
