Here in the UK we celebrate the 5th of November with bonfires and fireworks in remembrance of the night in 1605 when Guy Fawlkes along with others plotted to blow up the English Parliament.
Guy Fawlkes was betrayed, caught, arrested and later hung, drawn and quartered for his crimes.
The 4th of November (tonight) is Mischief night, so called because it was the night Guy Fawlkes and his partners in crime took their barrels of gunpowder to the cellars of the Palace of Wesminster.
Children traditionally spend this night playing tricks (or worse) on their neighbours.
