Guy Fawkes Night  is commemorated each year  on November 5. It is occasionally designated as Bonfire Night and observes the anniversary the unearthing of a strategy coordinated by Catholic machinators to bomb the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605. Many participants light bonfires and touch off fireworks.

For you to grasp the reason why people commemorate Bonfire Night, then you must be informed of the past.

The night originates 1605 to the Gunpowder Plot. That year, a few Catholic radicals took action against the King in protest against the injustice against Catholics.

In keeping with the authority of King James 1, Catholics was assailed. The reason was given that the monarchy supported Protestants. A few Catholic men reacted by bombing the Houses of parliament.  

The contraption to be used for the devastation were casks of gunpowder put underneath the building. They were to be ignited when the king and other representatives were within parliament.   

The offensive was planned for 5th November in 1605. The schemers intended to kill the ruler in the melee and other renowned statesmen inside the house behind the mistreatment of the Catholic church.

The scheduled devastation failed since law enforcement discovered the plan before Guy Fawkes could light the gunpowder. 

It’s claimed that the failure of the Gunpowder Plot was as a result of misunderstanding among the plotters. A section of the planners became uncomfortable with the plan because the destruction it would have brought, and one of them forewarned the rulers by sending an anonymous note. 

That night, those loyal to the King toasted to the failed plot and his safety by lighting bonfires and exploding fireworks. Going forward, it became a frequent function that has been passed down the generations.    

Bonfire Night is celebrated as a tribute of the abortive attempt by Catholic radical elements to assassinate the king and other sovereign agents in 1605. The night additionally acts as an indication of the perils faced by statesmen.   

You should note that Bonfire Night is not a formal public holiday. It is more of a tradition remembered by protestants more than Catholics whose adherents were responsible for the scheme.
