Remember, remember…

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

This rhyme is commonly known from Guy Fawkes Night, he intended to blow up the House of Lords in London during the State Opening of Parliament on 5 November 1605. You might know the theme from the movie V for Vendetta. In England the 5th of November is still commemorated each year with fireworks and bonfires. A nice tradition, as everybody loves fire, eh? 😉
