1) From: Jim Gundlach
Have a happy one.  A free pound of El Salvador - Orange Bourbon  
Cultivar (out of 5 bought from Sweet Maria's) to the first person who  
can tell me what United States Institution or custom is in place to  
recognize Guy Fawkes Day.

V for Vendetta" ?   Anyhow, was it originally recognized by setting up "Pop=

Looks like someone beat me to the answer but here's the reference I
found for my answer:http://www.geocities.com/Paris/Rue/2409/gfelection.html"Many scholars believe that one of the ways that Guy Fawkes Day / 
Bonfire Night was translated to American tradition was via the 
celebration of Election night. This is understandable because election 
night is scheduled to occur either on or within days of Guy Fawkes Day- 
November 5. Additionally elections are after all just another way of 
removing the head of state and isn't that just what the conspirators 
wanted to do?"

Doug,
      You have it.  Washington decided to hold presidential elections  
around Guy Fawkes Day in repudation of some of his troops deriding  
Canadian Catholics.   For a good treatment of the subject go to:
      http://www.harpers.org/archive/2007/11/hbc-90001590      Send me your address off list and I will get your pound of green  
on the way.
