THE HISTORY OF CRACKER NIGHT
Cracker Night, also known as "Guy Fawkes Night" or "Fireworks Night", has its origins in England. The tradition was brought to Australia by British colonizers in the 19th century and quickly became popular. In Australia, the tradition was moved to June 30th and became a beloved annual event, with families setting off fireworks and other explosives. Today, the tradition has largely faded, but for many Australians, it remains a cherished childhood memory. In Tasmania, however, the tradition still endures and is celebrated on May 24th with fireworks, bonfires, and other festivities.
