🎇🇬🇧UK History - 5th November - Guy Fawkes Night🇬🇧🎆

📢 “Remember

, remember the 5th of November, Gunpowder, treason and plot” 📢

Guy Fawkes was born in York, England back in 1570, and was a notorious figure who had plans to destroy the Houses Of Parliament with explosives back in 1605. He was captured and executed for his crime in a ghastly way.

To this day, the UK still burn an effigy of Guy on a bonfire, but over time the night has evolved and now is more better known as “Bonfire Night/Fireworks Night”, and is an event for the family to watch fireworks, and hold sparklers for entertainment.

    The movie 'V for Vendetta' is similar. Is there any connection?

    @Allie why is anything still memorable, I’m not sure, it’s just become part of a tradition I guess over time, and morphed into something that’s more acceptable publicly so it’s still celebrated today. It is a weird one though, definitely haha
