We always had a big bonfire to get rid of garden rubbish, we used to make a Guy F.
Dad used to buy a box of Standard fireworks 2 shillings and sixpence, that were stored high up in a cupboard and on the run up to the big night he'd get it down and we used to decide which was the first and which was the last to be set off. Always had sparklers to write our names with.
We had sausages and roast spuds and chestnuts standing around the bonfire.
One year when I was "part grown up" I had a very small glass of cider, loved it.
No bonfire but each year we have sausages & spuds, I drink a glass or two of cider and write messages to my Dad with a giant sparkler ( wearing a pair of his old leather gloves) Bet I look a right teacake!
What do you do if anything?
