Fawkes was a member of a
group of conspirators who
plotted to blow up the Pro- '
testent Parliament in 1605.
The conspiracy was known as
the “Gunpowder Plot” be
cause a cellar under Parlia
ment was hired and filled with
barrels of gunpowder.
However, during the days ap
proaching Nov. 5th, children
are very busy indeed. First
they construct an effigy of Guy
Fawkes made from old
clothes stuffed with rags or
newspapers.
Gun Fawkes was to have lit
the fuse, but the plot was dis
covered and he was caught,
tried and hanged. November
5tb was the date of his undo
ing and In England that part
icular date is known as "Guy
Fawkes Day" and it’s a great
excuse for a lot of fun and
celebration. It is this day,
rather than Halloween, when
the children have a good time
before the cold winter weather
arrives. Although Halloween
is recognized In England,
there is no equivalent of
“Trick or Treat". Maybe
just a little mischief in the
air occasionally, and a few
ghost stories are remem
bered.
When the Guy has been com
pleted he is carried around
th e neighborhood from door
to door and children beg for
“A penny for the Guy”, All
the pennies collected are then
spent on fireworks (fire
crackers). Meanwhile the
children also collect logs and
other fuel - even discarded
pieces of furniture and a huge
bonfire is built in the middle
of a suitable street - pre
ferably a dead end road.
Fawkes is tossed onto the
fire, and everybody cheers
when the traitor is burned
again. The fire Is also used
to roast potatoes and chest
nuts and everyone eats other
traditional goodies such as
parkin (gingerbread) and
brandy snaps (a toffee. like
candy.)
If you really are wondering
what Guy Fawkes actually
looks like, you may appease
your curiosity by glancing in
the window of Fultons De
partment Store where a gen
uine Guy Fawkes is currently
residing. S.H.
As soon as darkness fails
on November 5th, thousands
of bonfires are lit all over
England. Countless Fire
crackers are exploded and
when the fire Is roaring
greatly, the effigy of Guy
