Well it’s Nov 5th or also known as Guy Fawkes Day.
Here is a little history on the subject.
I won’t elaborate but I do wish to put out some questions for my readers to ponder…
Are we celebrating Guy Fawkes, for fighting religious persecution? Or, are we celebrating the government’s success at thwarting a terrorist plot, thus saving many lives?
I think people look into this kind of thing way too deeply.
I personally think that people in general like the idea of overthrowing authority, sticking it to the man as it were. It’s the joy of telling Mrs. Grundy to fly a kite. It’s telling the pointy haired boss to pound sand.
Teen rebellion, baggy pants, tattoos, piercings, and rock n roll all have its roots in how we feel about Guy Fawkes and his supporters.
So I say today we should celebrate the anarchist in all of us.
Rock on Guy.
You were a head of your time.
