Yesterday was Guy Fawkes Night in Great Britain and each village school hosts their annual fundraiser with centered around a huge bonfire and extravagant fireworks display. They sold popcorn, hotdogs, jacketed potatoes and other treats. Naturally they didn’t serve beer, wine nor mulled wine so I think the rest of the family was a bit bummed 🙂 The kids were extremely excited to get to attend despite the wet weather but mother nature was on our side as it didn’t rain during the two hour event.
The fireworks were really great. Soren and Maebh were shocked when they went off and both immediately went into shock screaming and crying. Soren was fine as long as I held my hands over his hat and ears. Maebh refused to look at them and finally came around but only after a long while.
