Remember, remember,
the 5th of November
the gunpowder treson and plot
I know of no reason,
why the gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot!

If you've seen the movie or read about it in history books, you'll know what I mean. Actually, this wasn't even worth mentioning in our history class. :(

Anyways, happy 5th! Go blow something up!:clap:

You bring an excelent point.

In that case, if none of you know who Guy Fawkes is, then you can't do anything for November 5th.

With that said, if you have to blow up something, please refrain from blowing up the Houses of Parliament.

Ah, but ours is because a group of people plotted to kill King James I, his family, and most of the aristocracy. We set off fireworks, and burn scarecrows, named Guys.

Cinco De Mayo, according to Wikipedia, "commemorates an initial victory of Mexican forces led by General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín over French forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862". That involves drinking, eating and dancing.

I don't see a similarity.
