My night is pretty boring so far. What about yours?
It was bonfire night! So it was a good night!
If fun colours and loud banging is your thing.
... and nobody knows quite why they're celebrating.
I love being English.
Lol, we know that it's Guy Fawkes Night. What I mean is that the majority of people have no idea why exactly we celebrate it. I mean, by today's standards Fawkes was a terrorist who tried to blow up parliament... but with that said the parliament/King were being asses and arguably deserved it.I think you're celebrating on the fifth of November because as far as I know, the only British holiday on that night is Guy Fawkes Night
the fifth of november,
the gunpowder treason and plot.
I know of no reason,
why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot."
Interestingly enough, the only reason I know about the existance of Guy Fawkes Night (aside from V for Vendetta, which doesn't specifically mention it), is because of my French English dictionary which has an entry on Guy Fawkes night in part of it.
