Today is Guy Fawks' Day and hope all of you will have a terrific day.
Guy Fawks and a band of men tried to bomb Parliament in 1606 and failed. So this day is celebrated in the UK, Canada, Australia etc. as a symbol of peace.
The kids go door to door to beg for a penny for the guy (to pay for their fireworks). the symbolic guy is burned in effigy in the evening in a huge bonfire (warning do not try this in California).
Treats include treacle puddings and apples etc to celebrate.
Hope this gives everyone some creativity juice to make it a celebration of your own today.
Enjoy yourselves!
