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. They show these Guys to people and ask them for "a penny for the Guy." They then use this money to buy fireworks.
