记得啊,十一月五日

Guy Fawkes的火药计谋失败

 

在英国,到了十一月,很多人都会念一念以下这段歌谣:

“Remember, remember,
the fifth of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
We see no reason why
Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!”

今天是英国的Guy Fawkes Day,俗称Bonfire Night (焰火之夜)。

大人小孩都会从这一天开始大放烟火。天空时时绽放美丽的烟火,满天璀璨,噼噼啪啪的吵杂声,也很烦人。

1605年,英国的罗马天主教徒仍旧受到宗教压迫,十几个天主教徒,毅然策划当国会在十一月五日召开时,要用火药来炸死英国国王詹姆士一世(James 1)。可是,计谋遭到揭穿,负责看管火药的Guy Fawkes,也就遭到逮捕、处决。
