Remember, Remember the Fifth Of November [VIDEO]

YouTube

“Remember, remember the fifth of November,” the line from the film V for Vendetta has been on my mind all day long. It’s an interesting film developed from a graphic novel, but it refers to one of Britain’s holidays: Guy Fawkes Day.

According to Wikipedia, Guy Fawkes Day is an annual holiday observed on November 5, primarily in Great Britain. Its history begins with the events of November 5, 1605, when Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot, was arrested while guarding explosives the plotters had placed beneath the House of Lords.

Celebrating the fact that King James I had survived the attempt on his life, people lit bonfires around London, and months later the introduction of the Observance of 5th November Act enforced an annual public day of thanksgiving for the plot’s failure.

The holiday is also known as Bonfire Night and Firework Night. It was utilized as plot device in the film V for Vendetta, as a trigger to revolution in a futuristic dystopian London.
