Its hard to believe that at this time in two weeks, I will be in an aeroplane on my way to California. The time is going so fast. There are so many 'last times' I will experience before I go. Last trip on the bus to Bangor, last time I will see snow on my mountain, ....and tonight.. my last Bonfire Night
In case you don't know, every November 5th in the UK, we commemorate the event in 1605, when Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot, was arrested while guarding explosives the plotters had placed beneath the House of Lords in London. People were so happy that King James I had survived the assassination attempt on his life, they lit bonfires around the city. Months later the introduction of the Observance of 5th November Act enforced an annual public day of thanksgiving for the plot's failure.
Mugs of hot chocolate, candy apples and hot dogs were in abundance. The firework displays were quite incredible and very loud. I'm afraid my pictures don't do them justice
I thoroughly enjoyed myself...and as Bonfire Nights go...it was one of the best.
Love and Hugs
