Hi Verna,

Bonfire / Guy Fawkes Night is actually 5th November, but for convenience often takes place at the nearest weekend.

(Copy / paste this link:)

It celebrates the failure of the gunpowder plot by Guy Fawkes to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605.

Of course you might question why it is recognised in Scotland as the Act of Union between Scotland & England was 1707 ?

Alex
