TONIGHT in the UK, being November 5th we celebrate #guyfawkes . A quaint olde custom, which marks the thwarted 'Gun Powder Plot, of one Fawkes and his merry band of conspirators and their failed plan to blow up the #houseofparliament in London, along with the government of the time. Fawkes was captured and with his friends, there was a 'right old carve up'!! Tonight across the land, as we light roaring bonfires, let off fireworks and raise a glass of warm mulled wine, to Fawkes... please take care. Remember the 'Firework Code', put your pets safe inside your home and have a great time...as I am sure there is someone else who would have loved to have been with you tonight!
"Remember, remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason, why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy FawkesGuy Fawkes, guy, t'was his intent
To blow up king and parliament.
Three score barrels were laid below
To prove old England's overthrow.
By God's mercy he was catch'd
With a darkened lantern and burning match.
So, holler boys, holler boys, Let the bells ring.
Holler boys, holler boys, God save the king.
And what shall we do with him?
A 'charming' olde ode to Guy Fawkes....
