Guy Fawkes Night


We saw some fireworks today because it was a Guy Fawkes Night today in this little village.  (You can find the explanation on Guy Fawkes here.)  Watching a doll with clothes on being burned  seems such a cruel thing  but people here don’t seem think so.


I learned about Guy Fawkes Night when I was living in Exeter when I was young learning English and I remember going to the event with my friends to see the fireworks, but as we are used to spectacles of fireworks in Japan (mainly in the summer), I must say we weren’t impressed.  However, now that we live in a small village where nothing much happens, it was quite nice to see the fireworks tonight! We didn’t go to the event venue but we were able to see the fireworks right behind our garden.
