Remember, remember the 5th of November…

….gunpowder, treason and plot.  I see no reason why gunpowder, treason should ever be forgot….

I actually almost forgot!!! The evening of the 5th of November to us English folk means  bonfire night or as it’s more formally known as ‘Guy Fawkes Night’.  Guy Fawkes’ plan to blow up the Houses of Parliament was foiled and so every year we celebrate this by making a scarecrow type figure which represents Guy Fawkes, putting him on top of a huge fire and setting him alight. Like so….


Ironically, although we celebrate the foiled attempt of Guy Fawkes anti-social behaviour, there is talk in the UK that they are attempting to ban this celebration because of the bad and criminal behaviour of some of the youngsters!!!

Anyhoo, this day makes me think of home and I wanted to share it with you all.
