Guy Fawkes Night  is commemorated each year  on November 5. It is at times referred to as Bonfire Night and marks the remembrance the revelation of a conspiracy controlled by Catholic manipulators to bomb the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605. Many folks ignite bonfires and set off fireworks.

For you to identify with why we observe Bonfire Night, then you are supposed to learn the the yesteryears.

The celebration can be traced to 1605 to the Gunpowder Plot. That year, a group of Catholic radicals rebelled against the Monarchy dissenting the injustice against Catholics.

Going by the rule of King James 1, the Catholic religion was assailed. The reason was on account of the fact that the king endorsed Protestants. Some Catholic men retaliated by bombing the Houses of parliament.  

The instrument to be used for the devastation were barrels of gunpowder placed underneath the building. They were to be exploded the moment the king and other noblemen were inside parliament.   

The bombing was set for 5th November in 1605. The plotters desired to assassinate the king in the process in addition to other prominent statesmen inside the parliament culpable of tormenting the Catholic church.

The planned deed was unsuccessful after state officials became aware of the ploy before Guy Fawkes could ignite the gunpowder. 

It is asserted that the non-success of the Gunpowder Plot was due to squabbles among the planners. Some became uncomfortable with the plot due to the damage it would have caused, and one of the conspirators warned the monarchy by sending an unacknowledged letter. 

The same night, those dedicated to the Monarchy jubilated the failed conspiracy and his well-being by lighting bonfires and setting off fireworks. From then, it became a customary function that has been passed down the generations.    

Bonfire Night is celebrated as a tribute of the abortive effort by Catholic radical elements to murder the king and other monarchy agents in 1605. The night in addition is a reminder of the hazards faced by rulers.   

You should not forget that Bonfire Night is not an official public holiday. It’s more of a custom remembered by protestants more than Catholics whose followers were responsible for the plan.
