The Walpurgisnacht fires would help fill the void between one Guy Fawkes Day and the next. I'll have to add that to my calendar of special days. My wife and I generally celebrate Midsummer's Eve with a bottle of my homemade elderberry wine and a fire, although not a bonfire. I leave a small saucer of the wine under the elderberry bush for the elves to ensure a good crop of berries. Not that I'm superstitious or anything.

Seems there can be a reason to celebrate just about every day ;)))
