We're officially in lockdown as of today, and although Bonfire Night this year was bound to be minimal, you may have had plans for fireworks displays from the car followed by a visit to your local, that have had to be cancelled with this second nationwide lockdown.
For us at Aurina HQ, Bonfire Night is an opportunity to spend much needed time with friends and family enjoying the food, drink and atmosphere this time of year brings. Even though we won't be watching a big fireworks display with a crowd of friends, we've been thinking of ways we can still have a great evening for Guy Fawkes and for nights throughout lockdown.
When the sun goes down why not wrap up warm in hats and gloves, throw on some wellies and build your own (slightly smaller) bonfire to huddle around together, perhaps with a glass of wine or two for a romantic evening. For the little ones, waving sparklers and toasting marshmallows is always a winner!

Snug Movie Night
Maybe you're secretly pleased not to be out in the cold, crisp November air but still love the glow and crackle of the fire. Have the best of both with a movie night snuggled up next to the fire with a decadent hot chocolate in your favourite mug. Get your fire going using our wax firelighters to fill your snug or living room with the scent of cinnamon, orange and pine for added festive feels.

Get back into the swing of virtual get-togethers and login to host a virtual drinks party or quiz.

The kids can even get involved with neon glasses and light up gloves, so much more fun than glow sticks!
