  1. I wonder if it would be fitting to add here that to this day, every year, Guy Faukes effigies are burnt in Britain in bonfires, in commemoration of the day.
    The effigies usually come with a mask of a smiling man with thin mustache and tiny pointed beard.
    Just when the custom was dying out, the mask once again became popular when used in the film “V for Vendeta” and is now a well-known image of popular culture. It is the same mask used by the cyber-activist group “Anonymous”.
