Guy Fawkes & the Gunpowder Plot
Words of "Remember Remember" refer to Guy Fawkes with origins in 17th century English history. On the 5th November 1605 Guy Fawkes was caught in the cellars of the Houses of Parliament with several dozen barrels of gunpowder. Guy Fawkes was subsequently tried as a traitor with his co-conspirators for plotting against the government. He was tried by Judge Popham who came to London specifically for the trial from his country manor Littlecote House in Hungerford, Gloucestershire. Fawkes was sentenced to death and the form of the execution was one of the most horrendous ever practised (hung ,drawn and quartered) which reflected the serious nature of the crime of treason.

The Tradition begins...
The following year in 1606 it became an annual custom for the King and Parliament to commission a sermon to commemorate the event. Lancelot Andrewes delivered the first of many Gunpowder Plot Sermons. This practice, together with the nursery rhyme, ensured that this crime would never be forgotten! Hence the words " Remember , remember the 5th of November" The poem is sometimes referred to as 'Please to remember the fifth of November'. It serves as a warning to each new generation that treason will never be forgotten.

In England the 5th of November is still commemorated each year with fireworks and bonfires culminating with the burning of effigies of Guy Fawkes (the guy). The 'guys' are made by children by filling old clothes with crumpled newspapers to look like a man.

Tradition allows British children to display their 'guys' to passers-by and asking for " A penny for the guy".

Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot...

  • Pre-owned Jean-paul Gaultier Black Vintage Bondage Laced Zip Wetsuit Zipper Dres
    More info
    Fabulous original vintage Jean Paul Gaultier laced corset and zip back wetsuit wiggle dress gown in black and persimmon/paprika color. The detailing on this stunner is incredible and the hourglass styling really accentuates the body! This has a lace up corset back over a zipper and looks amazing on. This is a definite "attention getter" dress perfect for the holidays or for clubbing. What a great retro dress to dance the night away and turn heads. Dress is made in Italy and tagged a size 6 U.S. Bust 38/40, waist 30, hips 42/44, length 51. We aren't sure if this one was custom fit or if it is mis-sized. It has some threads that need restitching which seems to be the norm for this dress. It is in great vintage condition with hardly any wear - looks practically unworn.
