Guy Fawkes for Kids (Bonfire Night)

 


Bonfire Night

5th November

"Remember, remember,
the fifth of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
We see no reason why
Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!"

Words to Guy Fawkes Rhyme

 

On 5 November every year, children in Britain get excited because it is Bonfire Night (Guy Fawkes' Night). We lit bonfires and enjoy fireworks displays. On top of the fire is a guy (a homemade model of a man, like a scarecrow).

We do these things because we're remembering when the King of England, James l, and the Houses of Parliament were nearly blown up with gunpowder
