Five Things You Should Know about Guy Fawkes Day

Fireworks play a big part of the Guy Fawkes celebration.

In a tradition somewhat like the American Halloween, children make images of Guy Fawkes (and sometimes modern politicians), called "Guys," and take them around the streets or the neighborhoods in which they live.
