  4. Amy Snawder says:

    I'm American, but I was able to attend a Bonfire Night – in Germany! My husband is military and we lived in Australia for a time on an exchange assignment. There was also an English officer there on exchange. After Australia we both were posted to units in Germany. We were able to visit our English friends in Germany and attended the Bonfire Night on the UK Army post there. ☺ 🔥

  33. ari3lz3pp3lin says:

    I know it's only been in the last decade or so but in the U.S. many people celebrate Guy Fawkes day. I didn't know it was synonymous with bonfires and fireworks in the Uk though! Reminds me of our Independence day celebrations.
