Guy Fawkes/ Bonfire Night 2017
Remember, remember the fifth of November,
Gunpowder treason and plot.
We see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes, guy, t'was his intent
To blow up king and parliament.
Three score barrels were laid below
To prove old England's overthrow.
By god's mercy he was catch'd
With a darkened lantern and burning match.
So, holler boys, holler boys, let the bells ring.
Holler boys, holler boys, God save the king.
And what shall we do with him?
What is Guy Fawkes night?
A nursery rhyme taught to the children of the UK which is a powerful reminder of the famous Gunpowder treason back in November 1605. Guy Fawkes was arrested while guarding explosives that the gunpowder plotters had placed beneath the House of Lords.
How do we celebrate this glorious tradition you ask? Bonfire night/Firework night of course; which a large majority of the UK celebrate every 5th of November. You know the night I mean, the sleepless night with nothing but the sound of endless booms.
Here at Hollywood, we love our fireworks. Big ones, small ones, you name it, we have it! What would firework night be without our fireworks, am I right? It sounds like it’s time for you to do some shopping!
What do we suggest?
This little beauty contains 12 mixed barrages of fireworks, just enough bangs to drive the neighbourhood crazy!
Aerial Attack Firework Selection Box From Bright Star Fireworks. This Selection Box has 22 illuminating Fireworks! It fills the sky with noise and colour to light up any party.
Now this one says it all, it’s even named after the legend himself and it’s an ideal choice. Wheels, Roman Candles, Barrages and Fountains combine to give bright colours and marvellous effects.
These are just a few of many and trust us when we say they certainly are spectacular. They will help keep the tradition alive, definitely.
Don’t forget to remember!
