Remember,remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder treason and plot;
I see no reason why Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
This holiday is set aside in the United Kingdom every November 5th as a day of public thanksgiving. Thankful for what? You might ask.
Conspirators planned to blow up the Houses of Parliament and King James I on November 5, 1605. Twenty barrels of gunpowder were discovered on the eve of the intended detonation. The conspirators were arested. Only eight of them were caught, there were a total of 11 including Guy Fawkes, they were tried and beheaded. Their heads placed on spikes at London Bridge. Guy Fawkes day is still observed, the entire country lights up with bonfires and celebration.
And yes a certain movie had its premise based on this day.
What a great time to use promotional matches.
