5th November

Guy-Fawkes

For 400 years, bonfires have burned on November 5th to mark the failed Gunpowder Plot. This festivity is known as Guy Fawkes Night or Bonfire Night.

Did you know that the film industry turned Guy Fawkes into V for Vendetta? If you want to learn more about this special night and this special character, visit the following webpage: http://www.bonfirenight.net/bonfire.php
