“Remember, remember, the fifth of November.” In addition to being my sister’s and my good friend’s birthday, November 5th is Guy Fawkes Night in Great Britain to celebrate (is this the right word to use?) the events that took place on November 5th, 1605. Basically, the king back then survived an attempt to claim his life. Yay! There are firework displays all over the country and the ones here took place on the Glasgow Green. I went with several colleagues and while the fireworks weren’t all too impressive, it was a good time with good company especially since the night was unconventionally warm and get this…not rainy!! 😀 What made the event even better was the presence of the full moon, which seemed to add an extra dimension to the displays.
