happy fireworks

Guy Fawkes! aka bonfire night!

So basically this dude Guy Fawkes decides he doesn't like how the country's being run, so decides to blow up parliament. it didn't work...

but the english remember this evening by setting of fireworks. it was originally bonfires on which you burned a sort of scarecrow-thing on a bonfire to set an example or something like that...

but it's basically turned into just a fun night where people get together to watch the fireworks set off.

And i don't know what it is about them, but i love them. just about everybody does!
the display was great, i hung with friends and had a great night!
but it was pointed out to me that watching the crowd is almost as interesting as the thing itself

he has a point
