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 on a Bonfire 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 TUBE STEAKS Mmmmmm! I love all of the foodables!

  1. OMD OMD your Gramps and your Mum have the SAME Eyes.... they don't need those SPARKLERS...their EYES sparkle!!

    OMD Buddy your TUBE STEAKS look FABULOUS. What a super time you had on Guy Fawks NIGHT...
    Sorry your dad's sparkler went out. Did you Pee on it?

  2. What a lot of fun you had! We have something like that - Fourth of July. There are all kinds of good food, shenanigans, and fireworks. It is illegal to have any like your mum and dad had. Fire danger and all. . . but the cities all around have a lot of big fireworks - oh yeah, some people also get the illegal ones. It is loud all night.
    Happy Guy Fawkes Day,
    Love Noodles
