Guy Fawkes Day

As a result of Guido Fawkes and his crew, the streets of London are occupied with people lighting fire works. From what I can remember the blasts started on Friday night. The kids in the neighborhood have been going strong. It's almost as if there's a telethon going on and they must keep shooting fire works until they have reached their goal. I suppose the equivalent to Guy Fawkes day is the 4th of July back in America. 

So the story is that Guido Fawkes and company planned to kill King James I of England.They to blow up the House of Lords during the State Opening of Parliament. It went down in history as, The Gun Powder Treason Plot. The minds behind the plot where Robert Winter,Bates,Christopher Wright,Iohm Wright,Thomas Percy,Guido Fawkes,Robert Catelby,and Thomas Winter. There planned did not not and they were executed.

Happy Guy Fawkes Day!
