Remember, Remember, the 5th of November; Bonfires, Fire Jugglers, and Fireworks!

This November 5th, a group of us journeyed out to Chelsea and Kensington to view a bonfire in honor of Guy Fawkes Day, remembering the day he almost blew up Parliament. It was a crazy, fun, loud affair, filled with screaming children and adults calling for the effigy of Guy Fawkes to go up in flames on the top of a pyre, formed by panels painted with the 5th of November-esque things. Sounds, exciting, right? Well, it was!

A view of the bonfire before it went up.....

And after. Burn, baby burn!

There were fire jugglers there, too, which was really exciting. I got a video of one performing:
and some pictures of us at the magnificent celebration:

Basically, it was one of the funnest nights we've had, and if you ever get the chance to go to a Guy Fawkes bonfire in England on November 5, you really need to do it. It's awesome.
