You can have even greater joy than a party on Bonfire Night - go to mormon.org or lds.org. There you can find answers to life's greatest questions--where did I come from, why am I here, and where do I go after I die?
"I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth." 3 John 1:4
Have a Great Bonfire Night!

Fireworks have been going off for a month around here, actually. The British do love to celebrate. The reason Guy Fawkes deserves to be burned every year is he was in on a plot to assassinate King James I and restore a Catholic monarch to the throne. An anonymous letter alerted the authorities to look for the hidden gunpowder and Fawkes was found guarding it. He was to be drawn an quartered, but he saved himself from that as he jumped from the scaffold on the way to his torture and broke his neck. He died at the age of 36, which was old in them thar days.
