Bonfire (Guy Fawkes Night)
Guy Fawkes Night (traditionally known as Bonfire, or Fireworks, Night) is an annual celebration (but not a public holiday) on the evening of the 5th of November primarily in the United Kingdom, but also in former British colonies New Zealand, the island of Newfoundland (Canada), Vancouver Island, Canada, parts of the British Caribbean including the Bahamas, and to some extent by their nationals abroad. Bonfire Night was common in Australia until the 1980s, but it was held on the Queen's Birthday long weekend in June.

In Sussex they are particularly associated with the execution of Protestant martyrs.
