It’s Guy Fawkes Day!

Today, November 5th, is Guy Fawkes Day which is “celebrated” in the UK.  It is celebrated by fireworks and bonfires…though we have not seen any fires as of yet.  We are hearing fireworks tonight however.  The bonfires are to burn Guy Fawkes in effigy.  In some areas kids will walk around during the day singing "a penny for the Guy" in hopes of gathering money to build a "guy" to be burned on the bonfire.
