Bonfire Night

It’s four degrees outside but the fireworks are held about two block away or so up the hill (We can hear the boom-boom and clatter-clatter). So I took Khansa out for awhile to see the fireworks from the park next to our place.

About Bonfire Night:

Bonfire Night is an annual event dedicated to bonfires, fireworks and celebrations. Different traditions celebrate Bonfire Night on different days. Some of the most popular instances include the United Kingdom‘s Guy Fawkes Night, which is also celebrated in some Commonwealth countries; Northern Ireland‘s Eleventh Night, a precursor to The Twelfth; 23 June in the Republic of Ireland, sometimes known as St John’s Eve, a similar bonfire tradition survives in parts of Scandinavia and is known as Walpurgis Night; in Australia, the Queen’s Birthday. Several other cultures also include night-time celebrations involving bonfires and/or fireworks.

In Great Britain, Bonfire Night is associated with the tradition of Guy Fawkes’ Night.[1] The modern event is held annually on or near 5 November, although its sectarian significance has generally been lost: it is now simply a night of revelry and fireworks. Celebrations are held throughout Great Britain, in parts of Northern Ireland, and in some other parts of the Commonwealth.(Wikipedia)
