‘Remember, remember the Fifth of November, gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder treason, should ever be forgot’ so the old nursery rhyme goes.
Bonfires and fireworks
Guy Fawkes Night is held annually held on 5 November. It is also known as ‘Bonfire Night’ and marks the anniversary of the discovery of a plot organized by conspirators to blow up the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605. Many people light bonfires and set off fireworks.
Traditionally, Parkin Cake is eaten on Bonfire Night – a sticky cake containing a mix of oatmeal, ginger, treacle and syrup. Other foods include sausages cooked over the your bonfire and marshmallows toasted in the flames.
