Bonfire Night

People should not be be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people. ~ Alan Moore, V for Vendetta

Bonfire Night or Guy Fawkes night is one of my favorite British holidays. I love this country still celebrates a treasonous attempt to blow up parliament 400 years after the fact. I especially love how this year November 5 is the day before election day in the States. (If you live in this country, I hope you voted. Too many people take their right to vote for granted.) IMG_20181105_1743507The British Hubby and I always celebrate with a mini British feast and watch V for Vendetta. Every year, I’m a little more concerned that we’re moving closer and closer to the plot of this movie happening in real life. Scary on so many levels. IMG_20181105_1737327We are fortunately to have a proper British Pantry in the area that imports a good selection of UK products. The sausage rolls above are handmade by the British staff. This always excites the British Hubby since American sausage doesn’t have the same spices. We buy our salad cream in bulk. I also had a lovely Drambuie hot toddy with my tea biscuits. I suspect the British Hubby ate the entire tin of fudge during our movie celebration. IMG_20181106_1901454Gracie is celebrating Bonfire night in a slightly different manner. Cats don’t enjoy fire works, but she would love a sausage roll.
