Just in case you didn't know :-) :- )In 1605 a plot to blow up the houses of Parliment was discovered. Guy Fawkes was one of the traitors. Each year on November the 5th his effigy is burned on a bonfire and fireworks are set of all over Britain.... When you think about it, it is an odd custom to have survived all these years...
There once was a Fawkes name of Guy
Whose dastardly plans went awry
Now in November
We still remember
And take pleasure in watching him fry
