Guy Fawkes Night

Quote from: Wikipedia
Guy Fawkes Night (more commonly known as Bonfire Night and sometimes Fireworks Night) is an annual celebration on the evening of the 5th of November. It celebrates the foiling 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.

It is primarily marked in the United Kingdom, but also in former British colonies including New Zealand, parts of Canada, and parts of the British Caribbean. Bonfire Night was also common in Australia until the 1980s, but it was held on the Queen's Birthday long weekend in June.

Festivities are centred around the use of fireworks and the lighting of bonfires.

Anyone in the UK celebrating tonight? I just thought about bringing it up since I am a fan of V (V for Vendetta) and he is much like Guy Fawkes in some ways.

We used to celebrate it by having a big huge bonfire on the beach! I used to think it was just a Newfoundland Event
