Guy Fawkes Night  is annually held  on November 5. It is also designated as Bonfire Night and honors the remembrance the revelation of a plan put together by Catholic conspirators to obliterate the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605. Many people start bonfires and explode fireworks.

For you to know story behind the reason we memorialise Bonfire Night, then you are supposed to know the former times.

The day goes back to 1605 to the Gunpowder Plot. That year, some Catholic radicals defied the Monarch challenging the injustice against the Catholic church.

Going by the reign of King James 1, the Catholic religion came under attack. This unfolded on account of the fact that the king favored Protestants. A few Catholic men countered by leveling the Houses of parliament.  

The contraption to be used for the assault were barrels of gunpowder set underneath the house. They were to be lit the instant the king and other office bearers were inside parliament.   

The attack was expected on 5th November in 1605. The machinators desired to assassinate the king in the act and other prominent officials within the parliament culpable of tormenting the Catholic faithful.

The expected attack was botched after the police discovered the scheme before Guy Fawkes could light the gunpowder. 

It’s rumored that the non-success of the Gunpowder Plot was due to differences between the people involved. A few were uneasy with the plan because the losses it would have caused, and one of them cautioned the state by sending an anonymous note. 

The very same evening, those loyal to the Monarchy rejoiced the botched scheme and his safety by lighting bonfires and lighting fireworks. From then, it grew to be a frequent occasion that has been passed down the generations.    

Bonfire Night is celebrated as a testimonial of the abortive effort by Catholic zealots to do away with the monarch and other monarchy officials in 1605. The night also functions as a reminder of the danger faced by leaders.   

You should keep in mind that Bonfire Night is not an authorized public holiday. It’s more of a ritual commemorated by protestants more than Catholics whose faithful were responsible for the plot.
