Culture Vultures 5.11.20

Hell everyone,

November 5th - Remembered as Guy Fawkes Day in the UK, for the anniversary of the failed "Gunpowder Plot" to blow up the Houses of Parliament and King James I in 1605.

Fire works were invented in China, and are used each year to remind us of the event.

My question for the forum this week is: if you could invent something to celebrate a special day what would it be? I might chose an everlasting chocolate fountain for a friends birthday

On to this weeks listings:
