Firework Night Walk (Tue. 5/11/2013)

“Remember, remember the fifth of November,

The gunpowder, treason and plot,

I know of no reason

Why the gunpowder treason

Should ever be forgot”

Fireworks 5th November

The day of 5th November is traditionally known in the UK as Guy Fawkes Night, to commemorate the day when a plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605 was foiled. Bonfires were lit across London to celebrate and give thanks for the plot’s failure, leading to the annual celebration of fireworks and bonfires to be established.
