  What did you do for bonfire night?
Updated 09 February 2005, 15.04
Remember, remember, the 5th of November!

We want to know what got up to on bonfire night.

Did you go to any firework displays? Or maybe even have your own private back garden show?

Maybe you think bonfire night is boring and you stayed in with your pets instead?

Whatever you did, let us know!
