Guy Fawkes/Bonfire Night - Sparklers!

I'm not sure people outside of the UK will know what this is but it's basically an annual event which takes place on November 5th to remember when Guy Fawkes on the 5th November 1605 was arrested while guarding explosives meant to kill King James who survived, as he escaped assassination the public were encouraged to celebrate by lighting bonfires. I love fireworks (except the loud noises they make) and this year we settled for sparklers, enjoy the photos!
