Today there are two reasons to celebrate, first off is the fact that it is November 5th, Guy Fawkes Night, and second is the fact that one of our very own Slotsjam visitors has won big at BODOG casino. Crystal Waters of California has won $5,401, so Crystal, congratulations, these fireworks are for you!
Any UK people will surely recognise this well known Guy Fawkes Night rhyme:
the fifth of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
We see no reason why
Should ever be forgot!"
For any readers outside the UK who are not familiar with the origins of this night of festivities and explosives I shall briefly explain. In November 1605 a gunpowder plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament and King James I on the day he was to open Parliament. The perpetrators were a group of Catholics who were upset by the rather shabby treatment they had suffered at the hands of the King and Government, the main character in this story being Guy Fawkes.
Every year effigies of this man are burned all over the British Isles in people back gardens and lager public displays, fireworks are let off and us Brits gather round to watch the displays with our baked potatoes and other goodies! Also, a quick fact for the day; did you know that it is the 40th birthday today of the popular childrens television program Sesame Street.
