Happy Guy Fawkes Day!

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

Thank you to the Guardian for the picture.

I'm a bit of an anglophile and love to celebrate random British holidays. Guy Fawkes Day aka Bonfire Night, is the celebration of the capture of Guy Fawkes. Mr. Fawkes and his cronies had the genius idea of blowing up parliament. Luckily for the Brits, he failed thoroughly when he was captured and executed. Silly Brits, celebrating the execution of people. But still, it's one of those quirky holidays that I'm fascinated with. Oh, how cool it would be to be British.

So in honor of Guy Fawkes Day, I plan on watching a little V for Vendetta and snuggling up with some homework.


  1. Oh to be british. You could have a cool accent and there are guys with amazing accents all over the place. love.
