Family fun at annual Mylor bonfire night of entertainment
The word "bonefire" is said to come from the Celts, when they celebrated their midsummer festivals of burning animal bones to ward off evil spirits. In many rituals, the idea of a bonfire was to purify, with some couples leaping through flames as a seal of their vows. In Japan, large bonfires are believed to welcome the return of the spirits of their ancestors. In Great Britain, bonfires are associated with Guy Fawkes Night. But apart from this, bonfires make amazing sights with embers exploding to create visions of the imagination and meditation. Sitting around a bonfire on a cold winter's night is a great way to enjoy friendship.
