Bonfire and Beer


Wikipedia says that a bonfire is so called because it was originally a fire in which bones were burned, but it is not forthcoming about this.  When quizzed, it simply dumps you at Etymology Online which says the same thing in almost the same words.   This is a much better explanation.   I didn't put any bones on mine!
