Happy Guy Fawkers Day!


There is a special day in England which is called Bonfire Night or Guy Fawkes Day.
 On the fifth of November boys and girls get an old suit or maybe an old pair of dad's pants and an old jacket and stuff them with straw or newspapers. Then they make a villainous - looking head (sometimes with a brightly coloured mask on it). If they can get a hat, they put that on too. The dummy is called a 'Guy'. The children then march their 'Guy' through the streets asking people for money: 'A penny for the Guy, mister?' If they collect enough money, they go and buy fireworks — rockets, and sparklers and the like.
