    Bonfire Night

    Originally, animal and human bones were burned to appease the gods on Bonfire, or Bone fire Night. Later, Bonfire Night became a celebration of the eternal flame of Saint Patrick on the shortest night of the year. Now it is celebrated with dancing and storytelling around the fire.
