If you’re lucky enough to have a fire pit in the back yard then you’re aware of how lovely bonfire night is!

Expats and Anglophiles are aware of Guy Fawkes Night aka: Bonfire Night its, (I’ve been told) a celebration to commemorate the foiling of a plot to blow up Parliament in 1605.

Modern day celebrants take the opportunity to build a bonfire, drink and blow stuff up; well, set off fireworks.
Ever Remember The 5th of November

The history of Guy Fawkes and The Gun Powder Plot is fascinating and a bit comical; the fact being that a bigger bunch of screw-ups could not have been in cahoots. The scary part is that they almost got away with it. There’s a deeper meaning here, but I need to go shopping for s’mores supplies and effigy masks.

Have a nice Bonfire Night!
