Guy Fawkes or Bonfire Night- 5 Nov
You could be forgiven for thinking it is the 4th of July. The British celebrate this because there was a failed coup. If you have seen the movie, V for Vendetta, then you know what I am talking about.
In 1605, there was a plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament. There were 13 people involved but the most commonly known is Guy Fawkes. Another key point to mention is the people were Catholic.
You will see fireworks, bonfires being made and effigies being burned.
I look forward to this night, I spend it with my in-laws. We walk down to the bank of the River Cam and watch the display at Midsommers Common. There are displays all over.
