Queene's Day celebrates the accession of Queen Elizabeth I to the throne of England on November 17, 1558. Observance of the accession was a national holiday in England and Wales for about 300 years, often with the building of enormous bonfires. It was revived in the village of Berry Pomeroy in Devon in 2005.
