Bonfire (Photo credit: Moyan_Brenn_BE_BACK_on_10th_OCT)

Bonfire Night is November 5th. In the UK they have this poem which explains the celebration:

“Remember, remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason, why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.”

While in the US there aren’t many who observe Guy Fawkes, many have experienced bonfires. Bonfires = celebrations.

Bonfires makes me think of campfires and fireplaces. Gathering around for the warmth, fires can be a place to unite a family, community, a variety of ages. Fires can be a place to join in song.

Grab you marshmallows, a guitar (if you have one) and sit around the fire (real or virtual). Unite the ages in song!

  • Keep the Home Fires Burning
  • I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm
  • Winter Wonderland
  • Check out this Camp Song website filled 480 songs with great resources.

What other “fireside” songs would you add to this list?
