Remember Remember the 5th of November.

The 5th of November  has traditionally been a  night to celebrate  Guy Fawkes being caught in the Gunpowder plot  .

The tradition of the bonfires in local down squares  is said to have began the same year as the failed coup, and progressed over the yea

rs to effigy being burnt on the bonfire and now huge firework displays.

Historian’s have also suggested that  bonfire night has origins in a pagan ritual, there has been accounts of bonfire being lite around the Scottish highland’s to mark the first days of winter and winter festivals around the country which were reclaimed as bonfire Night.

 

We hope all those celebrating the 5th of November with a bonfire, mulled wine and fireworks wrap up warm and enjoy their evening!
