By the way, its the 11th anniversary party for XpatLoop.com, but we're keeping our age quiet this year ;)

Note: Guy Fawkes Night is an event celebrated in the UK every year on 5 November. Traditional Verse: "Remember, remember the Fifth of November, The Gunpowder Treason and Plot, I know of no reason, Why Gunpowder Treason, Should ever be forgot. Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent, To blow up King and Parliament. Three-score barrels of powder below, To prove old England's overthrow; By God's providence he was catch'd, With a dark lantern and burning match."
