Guy Fawkes Night

Posted Wednesday, November 5, 2008, at 11:28 AM

Today - November 5th is Guy Fawkes Night.

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,

The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,

I can think 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!

To learn more - go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guy_Fawkes_...

or

Read the book V for Vendetta - Available at Game On

or

Watch the movie V for Vendetta - Available at Movie Gallery

Both the movie and book use the legend of Guy Fawkes creatively. At my house, we always try to watch the movie on the 5th of November.
