Just watch QI XL Series O, The Occult...

During the section about pumpkin lanterns, one of the images on the screen behind the contestants shows a street scene with flaming crosses - this is Lewes Bonfire Night and nothing to do with The Occult!

17 flaming crosses are paraded down the High Street, one for each of the Lewes Martyrs burned in the town during the Marian persecutions of Protestants during the reign of Mary I and forms part of the commemorations on Bonfire Night in Lewes each year.

Just saying...

A Lewes Resident

Oh yes, that uplifting display of religious tolerance and Christian forgiveness.
