To prove old England’s overthrow;
For those not in the UK who may suspect that I have finally lost it, I haven’t. Tonight is the annual celebration to mark the failure of the Gunpowder Plot of 5 November 1605, in which a number of Catholic conspirators, including Guy Fawkes, attempted to destroy the Houses of Parliament in London. We like to celebrate by burning badly dressed effigy (or “Guy”) on a bonfire and a fireworks display.
Will you be watching a firework display tonight?
