Firework night! 5th November.
5th November is a national celebration of a Catholic man called Guy Fawkes who tried to blow up the British Parliament in the 17th Century. He was caught, tortured and hanged. As a 'celebration', the British build bonfires and let off fireworks. I'm sure it's not a celebration of the death penalty or religious warfare, but is just an excuse for a firework display. In Britain, people aren't as used to fireworks as in Spain so there is always a lot of publicity to prevent accidents. Here is the official video telling people how to be safe. Click here to watch.
