Remember

sparkler

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

It’s Guy Fawkes night (also known as Bonfire night) in the UK today, which means that there will be lots of fireworks and sparklers being lit to commemorate the event when Guy Fawkes was arrested for trying to blow up The House of Lords on 5th November 1605

I don’t really celebrate the occasion but it’s nice to light a few sparklers and watch the firework displays in my neighbourhood
