How do people celebrate Guy Fawkes Day?

Guy Fawkes Day celebrations in Britain include firework displays and bonfires. Children make effigies of Guy Fawkes from old clothes stuffed with newspaper and walk through the streets with their “Guy” while asking passersby for “a penny for Guy.” They use the money to buy fireworks. Effigies of “Guy” are then tossed into the bonfires and burned. The events of November 5, 1605 are also remembered in the following nursery rhyme:

Remember, remember, the 5th of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
We see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
