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!

In my country we light the fireworks on New Years Eve.
It's beautiful but the poor animals are scared.

In my city we celebrate the" PALIO DI SAN GIOVANNI BATTISTA", this celebration is on 24 june. We play medevil games, there is a fashion display, there are medevil food and tables, there are archers and knights. The black smith forges a key to open the door of the city.
