In Britain, 5 November is Bonfire Night, the anniversary of a plot to kill the king.

Your Turn: Bonfire Night

In 1605 a man called Guy Fawkes was part of a plan to blow up the English parliament, but he was discovered and didn't succeed. To celebrate this day, people usually go to a fireworks display and burn a model of Guy Fawkes on a big fire!

Do you have a celebration with fireworks in your country? Or do you have a special day for any characters from history? Tell us about it and how you celebrate!
