Guy Fawkes Night

Remember, remember the 5th of November. 410 years ago in England Guy Fawkes tried to blow up parliament in an act to over throw King James for a Catholic country. Since then, Guy Fawkes has become a figure in pop culture with a mask that is named after him. People put on a Guy Fawkes mask as a Halloween costume or because they are part are of a group. On this night in England, there are many people who set off fireworks and have parades in honor of this history event. There are bonfires and people who are dressed in costumes. Although, I do not live in Great Britain, it does sound like a fun time to go out and enjoy. Guy Fawkes is a person who has become a legend through his act of treason in an attempt to change the country of England for a future he longed to see.
