Happy Guy Fawkes Day! It is a British holiday where they basically have a bonfire in remembrance of a plot to blow up Parliament which was be executed by Guy Fawkes. Um seriously, they burn the man in effigy. It sounds rather horrific and violent, but apparently those Brits just love it. I'm trying to think if we have any holidays like this where we burn a figure in effigy, but I can't think of anything. Hell, I don't even think we celebrate kicking England's ass in the Revolutionary War. We should do that, don't you think?
Anyway, I guess we need to have a bonfire so Lindsey feels at home, although I'm not sure what we have that we can burn. I'm considering lighting up the rotting pumpkins on my front porch, but the neighborhood might get the wrong idea. We'll figure out something, and luckily, it coincides with Champagne Thursday!
