November 5th Venuses




Rather than celebrate Halloween in England we tend to give much more prominence to November 5th, or Guy Fawkes Day, named after one of the plotters who attempted to blow up Parliament in 1605.

We let off huge amounts of fireworks and burn effigies of Catholics.  Younger children are given sparklers to play with, as seen here.  Dozens of people in Britain end up in accident and emergency departments of our hospitals with severe burns as a result.

Be careful ladies!

  1. In Scotland Hallowe'en has always been the primary festivity, but Guy Fawkes seemed to displace it until recently when Halloween appeared to recover.
