Welcome

“Let us read, and let us dance;
these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”

Remember Remember

I made this: Avid Reader at 9:41 pm
1742 Ditty

Don't you Remember,
The Fifth of November,
'Twas Gunpowder Treason Day,
I let off my gun,
And made'em all run.
And Stole all their Bonfire away.

Not a huge fan of Guy Fawkes myself (I'm all about Halloween and sweets!) but would like to wish everyone a very happy night!
1903
The fifth of November, since I can remember,
Was Guy Faux, Poke him in the eye,
Shove him up the chimney-pot, and there let him die.
A stick and a stake, for King George's sake,
If you don't give me one, I'll take two,
The better for me, and the worse for you,
Ricket-a-racket your hedges shall go. 

Let the fireworks fly. 

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