Guy Fawkes Day

Guy Fawkes Night is held on November 5th every year. 

It is also known as Bonfire Night and marks the anniversary of the discovery of a plot organized by some Catholic conspirators to blow up the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605!

To celebrate it, people in the UK light bonfires and set off fireworks. 
It is the ideal opportunity to burn garden rubbish as it is the end of autumn. Some people light small bonfires in their own gardens, while others light larger ones in a common space.
Due to its proximity to Halloween, many people organize a combined party for Guy Fawkes Night and Halloween! These parties usually include elements from both festivals, such as a bonfire and dressing up in spooky outfits. 
Popular foods this day include toffee apples, bonfire toffee and potatoes baked in the ashes of the fire.
