Bonfire night was originally called 'bone fire night'.
It is illegal to sell fireworks to anyone under the age of 18.
Fireworks can travel at speeds of up to 150mph!
Until 1959 it was illegal to celebrate Bonfire night in the UK.
Throwing a firework can get you a fine of up to £5000.
The combined heat of 3 sparklers burning together is the same as that of a blowtorch!
- Wrap up warm and don't forget your gloves!
- Find somewhere that is open, but not too windy.
- Make sure an adult lights the sparkler, and only one at a time.
- Never touch the end of a sparkler.
- Hold the sparkler as far away from your face as possible.
- When you are finished put the lit end of the sparkler into a bucket of water.
