Guy Fawkes

So its the big Day. Well the only big event that happens in November. Bonfire night. Usually i'd be going out with friends or family to go see a show or something along those lines of something remotely exciting. But no not tonight. Tonight i shall be sat inside enjoying the best of what British TV has to offer. AND of course i shall be revising for my French writing test. I've recorded myself saying my script on my phone and i've literally been listening to it for 4 hours non-stop. You would of thought by now i got the idea and would be able to recite it. But sadly NO.
Getting back to the point. We here in the UK are told from a young age to remember the story of the 5th of November and Guy Fawkes. And how he tried to blow up the houses of parliament! But are we actually told the real reason for the first and original failed terrorist attack ? Well to save you all (3people) the annoyance of yet another long and boring blog by S.B i shalt tell you, but i will tell you it was arranged by a group of Catholics who didn't agree with something or another about the Pagans. I hope you all have a firework filled night and i leave you with one thought;
Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of* no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent
To blow up the King and Parli'ment.
Three-score barrels of powder below
To prove old England's overthrow;
By God's providence he was catch'd
With a dark lantern and burning match.

Thanks for reading.
