Never heard of it. Anyone wanna fill me in?


Guy Fawkes was one of a group of conspirators, who planned to blow up Parliament and thereby assassinate the King of England, in 1605. The plot was discovered (on November 5) before they could carry it out, and the conspirators were hanged. Fawkes was the leader of the group, so every year on November 5 bonfires are lit to celebrate the saving of the king's life. Effigies of Fawkes are burned as well, I think.

Anyone in the UK, please correct me if I've made a mess of this! I think that's the general idea of it though...

Ah, that's what that movie V for Vendetta was based on wasn't it?

Well, in a sense yes, but the whole plot of V for Vendetta is essentially different. The movie is based on the same called comic. :silly:

To see a world in a Grain of Sand,
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

Me either but V for Vendetta was a really good movie.

Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfsbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright.
