Suddenly the silence is broken by whizz pop bang! Boom, buzz, wee! The dark sky lights up with neon colours. Red, blue, white, turquoise, silver, gold, green, pink, purple and yellow. The sky is swimming with colour. Sparkles fly and break away filling the sky with colour. Catherine Wheels spin round and round, faster and faster spilling out their fire.
The crowd echoed ‘ooh’ and ‘ah’ as each one explodes.
I write my name in the air with my fizzing sparkler.
I can still feel the heat from the bonfire. The flames jump up and one flame exploded. The bonfire is piled high with fallen trees, logs and branches. We stand around toasting out marshmallows on long sticks. The smoke pushing into my face.
That was my memory last year. I can’t wait to see how Bonfire night is celebrated tomorrow.
