Guy Fawkes Night
I love watching the firework on Guy Fawkes Night. I usually go to Perranporth and Pentewan Sands Holiday Park to watch their spectacular fireworks display and to take photographs.
Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Guy Fawkes Day, Bonfire Night and Fireworks Night, is an annual commemoration observed on 5th November, primarily in the United Kingdom. Its history begins with the events of 5th November 1605 O.S., when Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot, was arrested while guarding explosives the plotters had placed beneath the House of Lords. Celebrating the fact that King James I had survived the attempt on his life, people lit bonfires around London; and months later, the introduction of the Observance of 5th November Act enforced an annual public day of thanksgiving for the plot's failure.
