Happy Bonfire Night


Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.

Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent
To blow up the King and Parli'ment.
Three-score barrels of powder below
To prove old England's overthrow;
By God's providence he was catch'd
With a dark lantern and burning match.

Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!



Happy Guy Fawkes night. Buy a load of fireworks and go nuts with them. :) I'm in work until 8pm so will probably see the sky full of them on the train on the way home. Have a good night, everyone.

V for Vendetta was amazing, and I love fireworks. And Natalie Portman. So... I concur!

I'm not so familiar with your country's history but that's where I've learned some of it... forgive me if that sounded dumb!

It's my husband's birthday today as well. His oldest brother always sends him a card that reads Happy Guy Fawkes Day rather than a birthday. Have fun!!
