Remember, remember the 5th of November!

Remember, remember the 5th of November!

A team of EULS enthusiasts went up on the Calton hill to watch the fireworks for the commemoration of Guys Fawkes night on the 5th of November.

This tradition comes from 1605 as a celebration of a failed conspiracy against a Protestant King James I by English Catholics that aimed to assassinate and replace him with a Catholic head. On the 5th of November Guy Fawkes was caught placing the explosives around the House of Lords and was arrested. That night people of London have lit the bonfires to celebrate their King survival. This tradition has also spread the world.
