It is my understand that Nov 5 is remembered every year but have no idea if it with a gathering in the street.
5th Nov is Guy Fawks night which is the person the Anonymous mask is modelled from.
Guy Fawkes Day is a British holiday, which means it's really old. A long time ago in a land far away, Guy Fawkes, widely acknowledged as the world's second terrorist (Judas Iscariot being the first) tried to blow up England's White House, also known as the Houses of Parliament. He had almost succeeded in his plan, but was foiled in a dark tunnel by the 3 musketeers, whom he had informed earlier of his plans after capturing them and placed them in a deathtrap that inconveniently malfunctioned. England celebrates this day by force-feeding a criminal candies(which are called sweets) for 3 days, tying said criminal to a tree and then having said criminal beaten to sleep(called death) by police(called Bobbies). Children dance in the spray of gore, eat the sweets and promptly go to bed without brushing.
The mask is taken from the film V for vendetta.

Don't these people know that when they buy a mask it goes into the pockets of time warner executives?[
