Every year British people make bonfires on 5th November, called “Bonfire Night”. They celebrate the anniversary of the Gunpowder Plot. They remember that, in 1605, a man called Guy Fawkes and a group of plotters tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament in London.

On that date the King and his leaders were opening the Parliament, an annual ceremony that takes place every November. Guy Fawkes wanted to kill the King James I. They were discovered, tortured and executed.

Nowadays on Bonfire Night people light bonfires, let off fireworks, eat warm Bonfire Night food, like sausages and jacket potatoes and celebrate that the king was not killed.

During the days before Bonfire Night, children make a life-sized effigy of Guy Fawkes, called “GUY”, by stuffing old clothes with newspapers.
They put it in prams and on the streets they ask for money saying “A penny for the guy”. Adults give them money and then they spend it on sparkles and sweets. They put the guy on the bonfire and burn it.

Every year the Queen Elisabeth II travels on a coach drawn by four horses from Buckingham Palace to Westminster for the State Opening of the Parliament

Christmas Story
The bunny fun.

A fluffy rabbit lived in the forest. One day he was sitting in the shade of a tree when a squirrel approached him.
- Hello, sir rabbit, said the squirrel. And looking toward her, she pulled out his tongue and began to run out.
- Silly, thought the squirrel.
One the way to his burrow, the rabbit met a fawn who also wanted to say hello:
- Good morning, sir rabbit. And again the rabbit pulled out his tongue and began to run.
And he always did the same when he met an animal in the forest.
One day, all the animals decided to give him a good lesson. They agreed that they mustn’t say hello when they saw the rabbit.

In the following days, the whole word ignored the rabbit. No one talked to him and no one greeted him. On day, all animals organized a party and the rabbit appeared in the middle of the party.

No body took notice of him. Then, the rabbit overwhelmed by the lack of attention of his colleagues and he decided to leave with his ears low.

The other animals called him and the rabbit promised them not to mock any more of his friends in the forest. Everybody amused on the party and they lived together very happy for ever.
