Hi Jaquie - this may be a controversial viewpoint but I always thought Guy Fawkes was hard done by. Not because he didn't plan what he planned, but because there were many co-conspirotors including members of government and nobility who got away with it without being punished. Amazing story. xoxo

We still have Guy Falkes night here in Tasmania, Australia. It is in May though...dont know why. I know all about this tradition as my Scottish family were Protestants from way back.
As Julie and Millie said it has been stopped in Mainland Australia as too many idiots spoiled it, but good ol Tassie still has it...yay! I love a good bonfire.

Another great tradition taken from us by the Political Correct Police! I loved Cracker Night & yes Julie was correct, the Emergency Depts. of most Hospitals did a roaring trade those nights. MOTH still gleefully recalls the days when fireworks where readily available. He spent countless hours as a youngster prising the ends from the big Bangers, tipping out the gunpowder & 'recyling' it into much more 'elaborate' & illegal cracker creations. And then proceeding to terrorise the suburb of Blackburn in Melbourne! As he's still alive & kicking @ 61, that's testament enough that the PC Police have deprived 2 generations of male Aussie kids this essential right of passage!

My boyfriend is British and although he's never really seriously celebrated Halloween has always (as a child at least) gone all out for Guy Fawkes Day. I'm a tad jealous...it all seems so glamorous to celebrate the near execution of treason!

2009-11-05T17:42:56.071+00:00

I remember you telling me about Guy Fawkes. I love hearing more of the background to the holiday but yuck being quartered sounds gastly but I guess that was the custom. Wanted to teach everyone a lesson I suppose. Those religious nuts...oopps did I say that???
Hey at least you got a great FETE out of the whole thing....looks like a fun time!
