Guy Fawkes

guyfawksBeen in England for many years but never actually celebrated Guy Fawkes Day, & this is my first time ‘celebrating’ it by invitation, by a real host. A proper English host. Dave had planned for us a firework session after dinner..so, I’m so lookin forward for it as it has been long since I have ever played fireworks. To get to know what Guy Fawkes Day is all about, read on.

Quoted from Wikipedia:

“Guy Fawkes (April 13, 1570 — 31 January 1606) was an English soldier and a member of a group of Roman Catholic conspirators who attempted to carry out the so-called Gunpowder Plot in 1605, which was prevented by his arrest on 5 November. The plot was an attempt to assassinate King James I of England (James VI of Scotland) and the members of both houses of the Parliament of England. To do this, Westminster Palace was to be blown up during the formal opening session of the 1605 Parliament, in which the king would address a joint assembly of both the House of Lords and the House of Commons.

Cool shit

Forget the bomb. We got serious fun with this shit.

Guy Fawkes was in large part responsible for the later stages of the plan’s execution. His activities were detected, however, before the plan’s completion. Following a severe interrogation involving the use of torture, Fawkes and his co-conspirators were executed for treason and attempted murder. Guy Fawkes is remembered with Guy Fawkes Night on November 5. It was said that Fawkes was “the only man to ever enter parliament with honourable intentions. “(This phrase may have originated in a nineteenth-century pantomime, and was commonly seen on anarchist posters during the early twentieth century. The Scottish Socialist Party became embroiled in controversy when they resurrected the poster with humorous intent in 2003.)”

From a bit of history, we get down to the fun;
