The Snowman

For my dear pupils of 6e:

As promised,  here’s the animated film the Snowman (adapted from Raymond Briggs’s children’s book in 1982).

This animated special became prominent in British popular culture and its showings have since become an annual festive event.

Guy Fawkes Day (November 5th)

Remember, remember the fifth of November !


Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Guy Fawkes Day, Bonfire Night and Firework Night, is an annual commemoration observed on 5 November, primarily in Great Britain. Its history begins with the events of 5 November 1605, when Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot, was arrested while guarding explosives the plotters had placed beneath the House of Lords. Celebrating the fact that King James I had survived the attempt on his life, people lit bonfires around London, and months later the introduction of the Observance of 5th November Act enforced an annual public day of thanksgiving for the plot’s failure.

The fifth of November is celebrated with fireworks at night. Many families will make effigies of Guy Fawkes and burn them in a bonfire either in their own back yards or with other members of the community.
