Remember, remember, the 5th of November.

In 1605, on November 5th, Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the British parliament with 36 barrels of gunpowder.

Until the local parliamentarians banned the public use of fireworks, the day was always celebrated with bonfires and fireworks.

Early on November 5th, 2008, I am hopeful that fireworks will again be the order of the day.


  1. WE DID IT!!!!!!!!!

    Hello, world, change is coming. What a moment, Lee!

  2. We always had Guy Fawkes night, & our British Grandmother made sure we knew the reason we had the fireworks.
