Guy Fawkes and some of his buddies tried to blow up Parliament with barrels of gunpowder. The plot was thrashed and those involved were executed in true British fashion. Now every November 5th, England celebrates by setting off fireworks. The funny thing is that the celebrations don’t just happen on the 5th but extend over two weekends and many weekdays.
We watched the fireworks at Blackheath Commons after enjoying a dinner of curry put on for us by the Foote family. The food, cooked by Kimberly, was incredible and we ate so much that the walk up Maze Hill was good for us as it walked off some of our dinner.
