Guy Fawkes Night  is held every year  on November 5. It is at times known as Bonfire Night and honors the day of observance of the exposing of a plot put in motion by Catholic schemers to blow up the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605. Many people start bonfires and touch off fireworks.

For you to discern the rationale why memorialise Bonfire Night, then you must know the bygone days.

The day goes back to early 17th Century to the Gunpowder Plot. That year, a crew of Catholic zealots took action against the King challenging the oppression of the Catholic church.

In keeping with the jurisdiction of King James 1, Catholics was attacked. That was given that the monarchy was in favor of Protestants. A group of catholic men decided to retaliate by flattening the Houses of parliament.  

The contraption to be used for the attack were kegs of gunpowder placed beneath the assembly. They were to be sparked while the king and other noblemen were in the confines of parliament.   

The offensive was scheduled for 5th November in 1605. The machinators expected to slay the king in the action and other famous figures in the house responsible for persecuting the Catholic faithful.

The planned attack did not go through as expected after law enforcement discovered the ploy before Guy Fawkes could detonate the gunpowder. 

It’s rumored that the collapse of the Gunpowder Plot arose from disagreement among the people involved. Some became disturbed with the approach as a result of the devastation it would have effected, and one of them cautioned the rulers by sending an unsigned letter. 

The very same evening, those faithful to the Monarchy celebrated the failed conspiracy and his well-being by lighting bonfires and blasting fireworks. From then, it turned out to be a regular affair that has seen many generations.    

Bonfire Night is celebrated as a tribute of the botched attempt by Catholic zealots to do away with the monarch and other sovereign officers in 1605. The night additionally acts as an indication of the perils faced by statesmen.   

You should remember that Bonfire Night is not a recognized public holiday. It’s nearer to a ceremony honored by protestants more than Catholics whose followers were responsible for the plot.
