On November 5th, British people celebrate "Bonfire Night"It is about history. It all comes from history of England and the Houses of Parliament.It started four hundred years ago, a man called Guy Fawkes planned to kill King James by blowing up the Houses of Parliament. It was called the Gunpowder plot. It failed and to remember the event,  models of "guys" are burnt on the bonfire and fireworks are set off. Fireworks are made using gunpowder. This great video from "this is Britain OUP site" explores the origins of the festival and looks at how it's celebrated now.
