Tonight in the UK is Guy Fawkes Night, or Bonfire Night as it’s more commonly known. When it gets dark, there will be bonfires lit and firework displays off all over the country. Today is also Sparks the bear’s birthday!

Sparks is a Guy Fawkes Night bear, as shown by his embroidered firework motif.

Guy Fawkes Night, historically, originates from the failed Gunpowder Plot to assassinate King James I of England in 1605.

Do you have Sparks in your collection?
