Happy Guy Fawks Night!

"Remember, Remember,The Fifth of November,
Gunpowder, Treason and Plot.
We see no reason why
Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!"
In November 1605, the infamous Gunpowder Plot took place where man called Guy Fawkes and a group of plotters attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament in London with barrels of gunpowder placed in the basement. They wanted to kill King James and the king’s leaders. Guy Fawkes was arrested and this story is remembered each 5th November when 'Guys' (like scarecrows) are burned in a celebration known as "Bonfire Night".
Bonfires are lit and fireworks explode in the night sky and people gather for food and enjoy the nights events. As a little Puggy I get scared of the loud bangs from the fireworks I run around barking at them but I do like looking at them sparkle in the sky and the food is always so nice, Mum eats toffee apples and we go down Nanna Moynas and we all have hot dogs and we make lovely beef stews made with cider or stout and eat it with chunky bread rolls!  Mmmmmm! I'm excited just thinking about all those foodables!

Its really cold now so I'm wearing my jumper on my walks, Mum thinks I look cute and cuddly! 

Happy Guy Fawks Night everyone!
Love From Frank


  1. Hope all is well with you all and that the weekend fireworks were not too bad and that tonight is OK. Stay safe pal. Have a lovely Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. I don't mind the fireworks but my sister Aoife hates the loud bangs and has to be cuddled - she just sits shaking when she hears them. Enjoy your Guy Fawkes party - woofs and licks from Magic xx
