Bonfire Night by Lou-Anne, Camille and Ilana

Bonfire Night is a special day.  Every year, this celebration takes place on November 5th.

In 1605 a man called Guy Fawkes wanted to assassinate the king.  He went into the cellar of the Parliament with gunpowder but a person betrayed him and so he was arrested.  Guy Fawkes died on the 31st January 1606.

In England, people have the ritual of throwing dolls in the bonfire.  People watch fireworks and make a big bonfire.
