The street around the corner from us has pretty much turned into a Halloween block party. So many houses decorate full-on, and cars drive in from other areas to witness it and participate. The street isn't blocked off, but any cars that pass through have to move very, very slowly, to avoid the TOTers and peer through all the fog-machine mist!
I first learned about Guy Fawkes Day in college English classes. Of course, now I think more Americans do know about it because of the V for Vendetta movie. I don't know if it's still celebrated so much over in England, though. Is it?
