IF - Hats Remember, remember the fifth of November



Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder, treason and plot,
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent
To blow up the King and Parliament...

The fifth of November marks Guy Fawkes Night, and I think it is one of the most interesting celebrations. Guy even has his own Collectible figure!

I know what you are thingking, "what does this have to do with hats?" Well, in addition to having plotted to explode the parliament and the king, Guy Fawkes wore a hat, and oh what a glorious hat it was.

remember, remember...
