... Gunpowder, Treason, and Plot


Treasonous Guy Fawkes

Guy Fawkes Almost
Got Away With It!

Yes — Guy Fawkes almost got away with it. Blowing up the Houses of Parliament, that is! Way back in 1605, two years after the death of Queen Elizabeth I, her successor, James I, wasn't any more lenient to the Catholics In England – and so a plot was, er, plotted.

Guy Fawkes, a British subject, was sick and fed up of being treated poorly by James I – and the government.

So, with a group of like-minded friends, they hatched a plan to blow up the Houses of Parliament.

Thirty-six, count 'em – thirty six barrels of gunpowder were maneuvered to the cellar, under the House of Lords in the British Parliament.

It is said that one of the members working alongside Mr. Fawkes had "second thoughts", knowing that innocent Catholics would be killed along with James I and his minions, in this radical plot.

The whistle was blown, Guy Fawkes was caught red-handed, tried for treason – and executed – on November 5th 1605.





So They're NOT "Bomb"fires?


Easy Food Dehydrating & Safe Food Storage

Every year, I recall as a little kid, gathering twigs and branches – helping dad and my brother to build a "bombfire" for Guy Fawkes Night.

No one ever corrected me ... and it was many years later that I found out it was a BONfire – no bombs anywhere to be found!

My face was as red as the flames in the fire when I discovered that! LOL

We had amateur fireworks displays – and ate fantastic "hot potatoes" cooked in the fire's embers – with totally charred black skins ... and totally delicious too!

Modern-Day Terrorist

So it's fair to say that Guy Fawkes, back then, was a version of a modern-day terrorist. And every year, on the 5th of November, the Brits gather round their "bombfires" to burn Guy Fawkes in effigy ... hmm.

I wonder if it's to celebrate the fact he didn't, or if they celebrate Guy Fawkes' attempt to "get rid of the government"!
