       In the UK, Bonfire Night or Guy Fawkes Night is celebrated on5November and the night skies are filled with colour. It’s a special day in honour of a historic event.The history In 1605 English Catholics(天主教徒) were angry because the King of England,James I,was treating them badly.In protest,a group of men made a plan,known as the“Gunpowder Plot”, to blow up the Houses of Parliament(议会大厦)in London.An enormous explosion was planned for 5November,the day that the King was due to open Parliament.The group chose a man called Guy Fawkes to light the gunpowder.The plot did not succeed—the gunpowder was found before it exploded and all the men involved were arrested,tortured(拷问)and executed(处决).To celebrate his survival,King James ordered the people of England to have a bonfire on the night of5November.Bonfires,Guys and fireworks 
  On5November people remember the plot(阴谋)by celebrating Bonfire Night.All over Britain there are firework displays and bonfires with models of Guy Fawkes,made from clothes and filled with newspaper,which are burned on the fire.The fireworks are a reminder of the gunpowder that Guy Fawkes hid in the cellar of Parliament.Children used to take home-made Guys onto the streets and ask for “a penny for the Guy”to collect money to buy fireworks.At the Edenbridge Display in Kent last year,a9-metre “celebrity” Guy was burned of Wayne Rooney wearing Shrek-style ears and a Manchester United football shirt.Food 
  It’s normally quite cold in November in Britain,so on Bonfire Night people wear hats,scarves and gloves to spend the evening outside.Traditional Bonfire Night food is hot baked potatoes.The potatoes are cooked on the bonfire and filled with butter and cheese.There are also toffee apples(apples on a stick,covered in sugar) and in the north of England they eat a special type of cake called parkin.
