The November means different things to different people from all over the world. To those of you in the US, November is time for Thanksgiving, to celebrate the history of the US and gather with friends and family to talk about what you’re thankful for. In the UK November holds a different meaning. We celebrate a guy who tried to kill the King with gunpowder but was catch, so happy November to you all whether you are celebrating Thanksgiving or Guy Fawkes or your respective celebrations with that I leave you with this:

Remember, remember, the 5th of November
The Gunpowder Treason and plot ;
I know of no reason why Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.

Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes,
‘Twas his intent.
To blow up the King and the Parliament.
Three score barrels of powder below.
Poor old England to overthrow.
By God’s providence he was catch’d,
With a dark lantern and burning match

Holloa boys, Holloa boys, let the bells ring
Holloa boys, Holloa boys, God save the King!

Hip hip Hoorah !
Hip hip Hoorah !

A penny loaf to feed ol’Pope,
A farthing cheese to choke him.
A pint of beer to rinse it down,
A faggot of sticks to burn him.
Burn him in a tub of tar,’
Burn him like a blazing star.
Burn his body from his head,
Then we’ll say: ol’Pope is dead.

Join the Harvest Festival at Tribute City in Second Life to celebrate November.
