Remember, Remember, the 5th of November

Over the weekend we celebrated our 2nd Guy Fawkes night since we moved to England! Every year on the 5th of November, people all over the UK celebrate what's fondly known as 'Bonfire Night' with... you guessed it! A bonfire, but also fabulous fireworks!

Mr. Julep and I headed down to neighboring Barnes for the festivities! It was a lovely set-up with a band and various vendors selling food, glow sticks and drinks.

The bonfire was massive as usual...

And while it was crowded, we were able to make a bit of space for ourselves...

One thing we enjoyed that we didn't get last year were some sparklers! It had been a while since I'd played with sparklers and I really enjoyed it! If you don't live in the UK, but you ever have the opportunity to come over to London for Guy Fawkes Night, I highly recommend it! Get yourself some sparklers, a glass of hot mulled wine and head on over to a bonfire of your choosing! It's a good night every year!
