Default Happy Bonfire/Guy Fawkes Night!!...

Now it's time for us Brits to celebrate Mr Guy Fawkes almost blowing up parliament!!

Remember, remember, the 5th of November
Gunpowder treason and plot.
I know of no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.

We celebrate it with house parties, bonfires and fireworks, or go to big organised displays.


 


Isn't it funny how lots of countries make celebration days out of what are essentially not so nice situations! Like us Brits celebrate a day when someone tried to blow up the government, and Americans celebrate a day originally connected with anti-colonialism.

Oh but who cares where they originated from, the sentiment behind both these days is now much more light-hearted and I think some younger children (and maybe some adults) wouldn't even have a clue about how these fun days originated.
