Bonfire Night Essentials – Coats Jackets and More

This year has just flashed by. I can’t believe it is winter already and that bonfire night is just around the corner.

For families, it is a great event. It is a rare chance to go out together in the evening and, of course, it is a lot of fun. But, you do need to dress up warm. If you are planning to attend a Fireworks event, here is a reminder of the items you will need to have bought, in advance.

A warm coat

Usually, by the 5th of November the weather has turned quite cold. So, everyone is going to need a warm coat. Preferably one that is wind resistant and waterproof. If it is not waterproof you will need a lightweight wet weather cape or jacket to wear over the top. Getting wet is the fastest way to pick up a winter cold. If any member of your family needs a new coat or jacket you should be able to buy what you need from Fashion World. That particular retailer sells a huge range of clothes for women, men and kids.

What is Bonfire Night & Why Celebrate 5th November?

I can’t believe it’s coming around to bonfire night again. It just seems 5 minutes ago that I was 7 months pregnant this time last year when it was bonfire night.

I first learned about bonfire night and the history around it when I was in primary school many moons ago. Guy Fawkes tried blowing up the houses of parliament with 36 barrels of gunpowder. But he was not the ringleader in the gunpowder plot. He was just the poor guy who got caught trying to ignite the explosives!

Today in the UK we celebrate 5th November by letting off fireworks having massive bonfires and throwing straw dummies called ‘guy’s’ onto the bonfires. The fireworks are let off to represent the explosives that were never used by the plotters.
