In England Guy Fawkes Day begins on November 5th and is a day celebrated with bonfires and fireworks. The Guy Fawkes Day is a day that commemorates the execution of an English traitor, Guy Fawkes. The traitor tried to blow up England’s parliament building. Effigies of the traitor are burned on the bonfires, also known as “bone fires”, and children carry around the “guy” asking their neighbors to give him a penny. The money is often pocketed and the children later spend it on treats. This Guy Fawkes holiday is the closest to the American Halloween holiday, but over the years the tradition has died down.
