Guy Fawkes Day/Bonfire Night

For British residents of Second Life, and those looking for a good party, November 5th is Guy Fawkes Day/Bonfire Night. In real-life celebrations, effugies of "The Guy" are burned, often after being stuffed with firecrackers. And in Second Life, some various locations, such as New London Village, will be having their own Guy Fawkes events.

New London Village offers more than a party. According to a CNN article by Janey Bracken, the sim has an exhibition around the Gunpowder Plot in which Guy Fawkes took part and was captured and executed for. Janey wrote the sim owners and managers, "have done a brilliant job displaying this part of the UK’s fascinating history."

The Bonfire party at New London Village will take place at Noon SL time. Other Guy Faukes events are taking place in Mango, the London England UK sim, and many others.
