Gunpowder, Treason, and Plot!!!

Today is the 400th anniversary of Guy Fawkes's arrest in the cellar of Parliament House with thirty-six barrels of gunpowder. I encourage you all to take this opportunity to play funny BBC trivia games and shout "Gunpowder, treason, and PLOT!!!" in the middle of random conversations -- it's fun! And just in case you can't find a bonfire tonight . . .

Happy Guy Fawkes Day!


  1. That gun powder should have been used for cannon firing practice.

  2. I'm highly amused that there's a holiday/fireworks celebration in honor of someone who wanted to blow up the government. I suppose any excuse for fireworks. . .

  3. 2015 Marks the 410th year they tried to blow up the parliament. Truly amazing TBH that we the british people still love this season.
