Guy Fawkes Night (Bonfire Night)

5th November / 11月5日

Guy Fawkes Night is a festival that is celebrated in the UK every year on the 5th November.

篝火之夜是一个节日每年都会在UK的11月5号举行

It is a night of bonfires and fireworks.

是篝火和烟火之夜

The most famous saying is “Remember, remember the 5th of November”.

就行的一句话就是 记住记住11月5日

 

Guy Fawkes was a man who, with others, tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament on the 5th November, 1605. He wanted to kill the king and other important people but he was caught. So every year people in the UK would celebrate Guy Fawkes Night to remember the day that the king was saved.

Guy Fawkes是一个男人协同其他人,试图在1605年的11月5日炸毁国会大厦,他想杀掉国王和其他重要人物,但是他被抓了!所以每年这个时候UK都会庆祝这国王被救的这一天。

在11月5日 会有烟火 大的篝火 还有一个假的木乃伊放在篝火最高处

On the 5th November there would be fireworks, big bonfires (big fires made from wood or straw) and a pretend dummy of a man put at the top of the bonfire.

在11月5日 会有烟火 大的篝火 还有一个假的木乃伊放在篝火最高处

Now, due to firework laws in the UK (people cannot buy fireworks, only professional companies), we go to a big park and watch the firework display and the burning of the bonfire. We would often eat toffee apples and baked potatoes.

现在 由于UK的烟火方面的规定 人们不能随便买烟火 所以人们会去大的公园看篝火晚会,通常我们会吃脱肥苹果 和烤土豆

 

‘Penny for the Guy’

‘Penny for the Guy’ was an idea so that children could collect money to buy fireworks for Guy Fawkes night.

这个说法是为了孩子们可以利用它为篝火晚会去筹钱买烟火

Children would use their dad’s clothes to make a dummy, and then go around saying ‘Penny for the Guy’. Adults would normally give money or some treats.

孩子们会用爸爸的衣服做一个假人,然后走街串巷说着Penny for the Guy,大人们通常会给孩子一些钱或者其他的好处

At the end of the day, 5th November, the children would then give the dummy to adults who put it on top of a bonfire to burn.

在这一天快要结束的时候,孩子们会把假人交给大人们去篝火晚会烧掉它。

Not many people do it now, but those who do have changed it to ‘Pound for the Guy’ ( £1 is the same as 9RMB).

不是很多人在做一样的事了!还有一些人把它改为pound for the Guy 1英镑£=9块钱

 

When I was younger, we would collect money and buy candy or lemonade. Our parents always bought fireworks so we didn’t have to worry very much.

当我小的时候,我们会用收集的钱去买糖果或者柠檬汁,我的父母会买烟火,所以作为小孩子的我不用太操心!
