Bonfire Night

I started this post the other night and didn't finish it...

It’s Guy Fawkes Night and as I’m sitting inside nursing a cold I can hear the fireworks outside and it made me remember those early months in the UK. During my first October here I was talking to some colleagues after work and they were telling me what Guy Fawkes Night was all about. Someone turned to me and with more fury than the conversation required began to tell me how because of the increasing popularity of Halloween, Guy Fawkes Night was becoming less popular. I didn’t understand what that was all about, but then I read this article and thought if I didn’t know better I would think my co-worker was quoted in it.
