Bonfire Night

Last night at midnight huge bonfires were lit across the west of Ireland.  There was a large one opposite where we were staying.  The whole town came out to watch it burn.  Bonfire Night is an annual celebration held on the 23rd June (St. John’s Eve). The celebrations take place in towns and villages across the country and centred around the summer solstice.  Today I’m at Fairview primary in Belfast which is a Forest School.

I am glad you explained the reason for the fire. Being Belfast you had me a little worried for a minute there.
