The two days are right next to each other, fate?
Guy Fawkes evening: (Nov 5)
Marked in a former world superpower (the UK) between two groups (the Catholics and the Protestants).
A person (Guy Fawkes) representing one group (the Catholics) went on the attack (tried to blow up Parliament).
Election evening: (Nov 4)
Marked in a current world superpower (the US) between two groups (the Rebublicans and the Democrats).
A person (John McCain) representing one group (the Rebublicans) went on the attack (produced negative ads).
Guy Fawkes failed in his attempt and the UK marks his execution. See where this is going?
