guy fawkes.

is it weird that i don't live in london anymore but i still remember that it's guy fawkes night?

for those who don't know, this is celebrated in england and former british colonies {except for the good ol' USA}, and commemorates the downfall of the gunpowder plot to blow up the houses of parliament.

how to they celebrate? by blowing stuff up on the thames river! haha.

{taken by me in 2005, the 400th anniversary!}

it's a fun night of parades and explosions and lots of revelry.
oh how i miss england!
