I forgot the 5th of November

"Remember, remember the fifth of November
The gunpowder treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot."

Well, what do you know, I totally forgot it was tonight. It is true, I am tired and it is Monday. The fireworks can still be heard as I am typing this. I didn't go to Bonfire Night/Guy Fawkes Night tonight.It means little to me as a foreigner. I do have to say, the smell of smoke and fire on a cold November night like tonight is lovely. But I would rather stay warm. The fifth of November means very little to me, as I said. Not enough to go out in the cold anyway. But I thought I would upload a picture of a past bonfire from Guy Fawkes, just to give some colours of the season to this blog.

Well Nov. 5 has turned out to be a very good day here.. I forgot the connection to Guy Fawkes tho.

Interesting celebration. I've heard this night's proximity to Halloween is the reason Halloween isn't more popular in England.

@Gwen-It is a very English celebration.
@Halloween Spirit-I have recently read that Halloween is getting supporters here and Guy Fawkes Night is losing some of its appeal. I love many things English, but I am no big fan of it.
