Penny for the guy. We didn't go trick or treating when I was a kid but we did collect money & sweets doing this for Bonfire Night - Remember Remember the of November (firework night), Guy Fawkes and the gunpowder plot at the Houses of Parliament ;
Lewes Bonfire Night - Burning Town and Hillside Watchers. Lewes is 5 miles outside of Brighton & each year the town goes crazy with bonfires, burning effigies, torch parades and barrels of oil poured in to the river and set alight. Its utter madness!
