Happy Guy Fawkes day everyone. One of the best holidays of the year.
I have some amazing memories of growing up in England and celebrating Guy Fawkes night. Massive bonfires are lit and everyone gathers around for the anticipated fireworks. We usually lit sparklers and could entertain ourselves with them for hours, dancing around in the dark trying to spell our names before the first letter faded into the darkness. Once we moved to Canada we carried on the tradition, in a much smaller way. But still we invited family and friends to gather in the celebrations, although I don't think they ever really understood what it was all about.
