When is Guy Fawkes Night?

  • November 5th correct

    Remember, remember the 5th of November. And not just because it is the Trivia Hive writer's birthday- which it is so send me an email. I digress, on November 5th, 1605, Guy Fawkes was arrested as he was about to assassinate the King of England and King James I was spared his life. Eventually, November 5th became a predominant English state commemoration. However, with Halloween quick on it's heels, the celebration of Guy Fawkes Night may be slowly fading much like my youth...
