Guy Fawke's Day

So Guy Fawke's Day is an interesting holiday.  We don't get it off, but they set off fireworks to celebrate.  Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Parliament in the UK but was foiled in his attempt. 
So the only time you can buy fireworks is the couple of days before Guy Fawke's Day and the day of.  Kiwis were setting off fireworks all week.  Which is kind of funny because it doesn't get dark here until late.

We braved the crowds and went down to the harbour.  Next year we plan on chartering a boat and going out in the harbour for a picnic and to watch the fireworks as they are shot overhead. :-)
