Guy Fawkes – Bon Fire Night

5th Nov, 2008 |

Guy Fawkes was a member of a Roman Catholic group who planned to blow up parliament to dissolve the regime. As a result we celebrate the 5th November as Bon Fire Night. Many Places through huge firework displays and Theme Parks often have special nights.

Children often dress up a “guy” and will ask for a penny for the guy. It is traditional to give them some money.

Much has been done to celebrate this day including having verses written. The most popular perhaps being:-

“Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder, treason and plot,
I see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.”
