Remember remember the 5th of November...

Tomorrow is the 5 November and here we celebrate Guy Fawkes Night...remember remember the 5th of November!!! 1605 was when Guy Fawkes was part of the Gunpowder Plot who attempted to blow up parliament, so we basically celebrate the fact that the King at the time survived the attempt on his life.  So now we celebrate by building bonfires and usually children make a "Guy" made out of old clothes and stuff them with newspaper to make it look like a person.  Once the fire is fully alight the "Guy" is then thrown onto the fire.  Then there's the fireworks display symbolising what would have happened back in 1605 if the attempt by Guy Fawkes had been successful.

The main man...Guy Fawkes
It's always a good night because we usually go with a group of friends to an event where there's food stalls, games, funfair rides, a bonfire and a fire work display.  I love it, my friends and I have a great time trying all the different foods and drinks on the stalls and challenging each other to the games.  Aaaaaaand it's a great excuse to wear my new winter hat hahahahah.....

New Winter Hat!!! haha
