Guy Fawkes' Day: Britain.
Remember, remember, the fifth of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.

Guy Fawkes' attempt to blow up the Houses of Parliament, for the Catholics, in 1605 was thwarted. This is remembered by the lighting of bonfires, with a stuffed effigy of Guy on the top, and firework displays around the country. Children used to parade their Guys around the streets asking a "Penny for the Guy". They would probably spit in your face if you gave them a penny today.
