Remember, remember, the 5th of November...

Remember, remember the fifth of November
The gunpowder treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot

It is Guy Fawkes Night tonight. Not exactly my favourite time of the year in England, as it has some Anti-Catholic roots (ironic form an unbeliever, I know, but I still think a pope is a lesser evil than a monarch), but it's nice to see some fireworks.
