weekend, we

Hi everyone, how was your weekend?

We got to see a great little fireworks show on Saturday in celebration of Guy Fawkes Night - a commemoration of a failed gunpowder plot to blow up Parliament several centuries ago. While this article gave me some insight as to why November 5 is important, I think I have some more learning to do. Even some of the Brits we were with didn't seem to fully understand why the day is celebrated the way it is.  Regardless, we all agreed that any excuse for fireworks is a good one :)
