Ever heard of the term ‘Bonfire Night’…well I’m sure you have. But ever heard of it in context with Guy Fawkes.? Well not everyone because before moving to England, I also didn’t know who or what that was.
So let me educate you a little, Guy Fawkes was basically a dumbass who formed part of a team who TRIED to blow up the House of Parliament back in the 1600s using explosives; therefore Guy Fawkes Night is simply a commemoration of that night; but with fireworks.
Its a night celebrated all over England and its something I wanted to be part of. So what did I do? Well a couple of my friends and I traveled from Bournemouth (where I live) to Poole to watch the fireworks celebration happening at the Quay. It was only like a 30 mins trip by bus (not to far away) but it was such a pretty sight because we literally got front row view of the beautiful fireworks show from the quayside.
How cool are these shaped fireworks below #creativity
For all full video showing the fireworks beauty, here you go. This was basically the culmination and the finale of the bonfire night 🙂
My next bonfire night should be experienced in another part of England. Let me start thinking where. Haha.
But for now,
PEACE, LOVE AND NJOONAMI.
