Remember, Remember the Fifth of November
Gunpowder, Treason and Plot.
We see no reason
Why Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot!
Happy Guy Fawkes Night! A strange holiday commemorating Fawkes’ failed attempt to blow up the British Parliament (including the king) in 1605. Kids still beg a “penny for the guy” from strangers to buy fireworks and there are bonfires everywhere. Some people even attribute our modern use of the word “guy” to this Fawkesy tradition.
Suddenly I’m in the mood to watch V for Vendetta.
