Remember Remember the 5th of November

On the 5th November 1605 Guy Fawkes' plot to blow up the House of Lords in London failed, an anonymous tip off led authorities to the Parliaments cellar where they found 36 barrels of gunpowder.  Guy Fawkes plan had been foiled.

On the 5th November 1989.  Hat, scarf and gloves on,  crackling bonfire, warm glowing faces, cold feet, whirling sparklers, waiting, watching... fingers in ears,  Oooos and Aaaahhs, 'Was that a rocket Dad?', the smell of fireworks hanging in the air, a hog roasting on the spit...my lovely childhood memories.

It is fireworks season... Diwali the festival of lights and the celebration of Guy Fawkes. Enjoy x
