Guy Fawkes Night
If you've ever heard the rhyme "Remember, remember, the fifth of November," then you may have heard of Guy Fawkes Night. This holiday commemorates the arrest of Guy Fawkes, who was planning to blow up London's House of Lords and assassinate King James I, in 1605. "People across Great Britain lit bonfires in a celebration that eventually ballooned into a night of revelry and mischief. While things have calmed down in recent years, you can still find parades, bonfires, and burning effigies of Guy Fawkes across the UK on Nov. 5," Smith said.
