Today we celebrate Bonfire Night, a typical British tradition. Do you know who Guy Fawkes was and what he is famous for? Said quickly, Guy Fawkes tried blow up the Houses of Parliament in London back in the year 1605 and since then that day is celebrated by lighting up bonfires.
If you want to know more about him, you can see the film “V for Vendetta” or visit the links below. By the way, do you recognise the mask that appears on the film poster? Yes, it is the same mask used by the group Anonymous.
