Guy Fawkes Night

Guy Fawkes
Guy Fawkes (1570-1606)

A big festival in England is the Guy Fawkes night (5th November). It's also called bonfire night. We burn fires, and send fireworks into the sky and generally make a lot of smoke. This happens as a celebration of the failure of the Gunpowder Plot of the 5th of November 1605 in which a number of Roman Catholic conspirators, including Guy Fawkes, attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament. Fortunately it didn't work. Some time ago it was popular to burn "guys" - dolls that were made to look like Guy Fawkes. This doesn't happen a lot nowadays. There are some special foods, like bonfire baked potatoes and apples covered in toffee. Hundreds of thousands of pounds are spent every year on fireworks. This is also the time of year when firefighters don't get bored.
