Guy Fawkes' night

Guy Fawkes was a Yorkie. And in York, one does not celebrate the execution of a local! At least, that's what I read in "the History of York". I wasn't sure what to make of that; would they really not have fireworks night up here on the 5th of November? That would be quite some constraint. And now I know: yes they do have bonfire night up here; they just don't seen to burn effigies of Guy Fawkes... but there was a nice firework display on campus! I'm happy with the light and the noise, but not the bloodlust...
