Travel Tuesday: Bonfire Night Edition

Hello November! The cold weather hasn’t quite hit us here in London yet (which, trust me, I am not complaining about) but the wintery festivities are almost upon us – the Oxford Street lights get switched on this week, which signals the unofficial start of the Christmas season and this week also marks Guy Fawkes Night, sometimes called Bonfire Night. It’s a chance to drink mulled wine, watch fireworks and hang out with friends.

What to wear on Bonfire Night

Even though it’s warm for this time of year, the nights are still chilly so it’s best to be a little snug. Gloves, a hat and a woolly jumper are just what you’ll need…for Bonfire Night and pretty much the rest of the season!

    This is the first year I’m missing out in quite awhile, unless I can find somewhere in Easter Europe that celebrates but I don’t think that’s going to happen.
