Remember, remember! The fifth of November, the Gunpowder treason and plot; I know of no reason why the Gunpowder treason should ever be forgot!

November 5th is a very British holiday. The reason it’s a holiday is to commemorate not a noble act, but a dastardly one; for all those celebrating to remember the awful price of treason. Guy Fawkes was executed in 1606, but giant fires are still lit in his memory every year on the 5th of November.
One of the parents at Lucy’s school is British, and throws a Guy Fawkes party every year, so this year we were fortunate enough to be invited. We were exhausted, having spent the entire day moving, but we were definitely glad we went. Several of our friends were there, and we got to talking with Lucy’s teacher about traveling.
It was a great time, and a great fire, and we look forward to attending more of these.
