GUY FAWKES DAY | BONFIRE NIGHT


The very first time I came to England, I was living in London with my friend Hannah. She and her brother took me to my very first bonfire night. "Remember, remember, the fifth of November" Hannah kept saying, "it's Guy Fawkes Day." I had NO clue who "Guy Fawkes" was. All I knew was that because of him, we were going to see a HUGE bonfire and a HUGE display of fireworks! I was pretty pumped!

I later came to learn, thanks to Hannah, that Guy Fawkes's intentions were to blow up the Houses of Parliament. I always thought it was strange to celebrate this, but at first I figured, "That's the English for you!" But, it actually turns out that the reason it's celebrated is because the King was saved from being assassinated. That makes sense now.

Either way- HAPPY GUY FAWKES DAY!
