Quite the holiday — and obviously very much my kind of holiday in that it involves bonfires and fireworks.

Of course it roots are religious — Catholics vs Protestants (in Britain) — though it is also seen and portrayed as a political ‘coup’ that went wrong.

That it was celebrated in Boston as an anti-Catholic ‘Pope Day’ is cute.

Well, I have reminded you … “Remember, Remember, the 5th of November“. Guy Fawkes Day — and Guy Fawkes night.
