November 2019 Camera Challenge-


I run with Scissors
November Camera Challenge:
November 5 is Guy Fawkes Day in UK ( my childhood home) and in the 50s and 60s we commemorated with bonfires and fireworks, baked potatoes (in the embers) and treacle toffee, skyrockets, jumping jacks and catherine wheels.

Guy Fawkes in 1605 led a plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament in London, with all the ministers and King James plus the royal family in attendance. The plot was uncovered- 36 barrels of gunpowder were hidden in the cellars.
Since then the episode has been commemorated by the building of neighbourhood outdoor bonfires, fireworks and the burning of a "guy" (a stuffed dummy/ effigy). The 13 conspirators were either shot or tried and sentenced to be hung, drawn and quartered for treason.

Your task is to create a page featuring a photo/ photos of bonfires or fireworks.
Scrap in your favourite style.

Here are the requirements that must be met for all PDW Challenges to receive points:

Thanks for explaining the story behind Guy Fawkes day. All my British friends talked about it but I never got the whole story.
Be back later with my layout.

Can I do a fire in my fireplace? We aren't allowed to have bonfires here though our idiot lawmakers voted to make fireworks legal. Go figure!

I haven't been to see fireworks in ages & luckily no one around me has shot them off since the 4th. I get such anxiety when they do because I worry about them burning my house down. Needless to say, I no long enjoy the 4th or New Years. They both are just one big stressor for me.

The closest I can come to a bonfire is the fire in my fireplace. I'm not allowed to burn my neighbor's houses down nor the woods behind me. LOL Here's my take on the challenge.
