Remember, remember, the 5th of November
The Gunpowder Treason and plot ;
I know of no reason why Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
It was in the year 1605 that Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the parliament. He failed and that was reason for a celebration. A celebration that turned into a tradition of having (huge) bon fires and fireworks on the 5th of November. When you’re in the UK at the time, you just have to go with the flow and keep the tradition alive. Well, that’s what I thought anyway.
Last night the time had arrived and my flat mates and I hopped on the bus going down town to find our way to the beach and see the fireworks. It seemed as if the whole town came out for this event as it was packed with people. All wearing beanies, scarves and big boots, except from some girls (that are obviously used to the cold) who were wearing a small sweater, flats and leggings..
This was my first firework show and it was amazing. A good 20 minutes of looking at the sky as it was decorated with coloured lights and James Bond music. As the new theme song came on, it really was as if the sky was falling..
(The black smudge in the corner is actually my foot.. I tried my best to get a good photo but photographing fireworks and your feet at the same time seems easier than it is!)
Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
And face it all together
