    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:

    V for Vendetta was a badass movie. I think that basically sums it up.

    Yeah, I doubt they really care about Guy Fawkes, they most likely just like V for Vendeta

    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.

    It's just like Cinco De Mayo. That's a Mexican holiday but everyone here gets hammered then too...

    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 SeguĂ­n over French forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862". That involves drinking, eating and dancing.

    I don't see a similarity.

    The similarity is us commemorating other nation's dates, mainly to get drunk. It's kind of our thing.
