Remember, Remember, the Fifth of November
The Gunpowder, Treason and Plot.
I see no reason why Gunpowder treason,
should ever be forgot.
Traditional Bonfire night poem.

Although Bonfire night is actually on the 5th, because that is a Monday and it’s isn’t a Bank Holiday/Public holiday, it is usually celebrated on the nearest Saturday, Today.
Although we often have to endure fireworks for the next couple of weeks, much to the pets terror and anguish. Many pet dogs and cats are traumatised by loud bangs and fireworks and so it is a terrible time for them. Thankfully my chickens seem to be oblivious.
