Guy Fawkes Night  is annually held  on November 5. It is at times referred to as Bonfire Night and observes the day of observance of the discovery of a strategy controlled by Catholic conspirators to pulverize the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605. The majority of individuals start bonfires and touch off fireworks.

For you to grasp why we commemorate Bonfire Night, then you ought to learn the past.

The celebration goes back to early 17th Century to the Gunpowder Plot. That year, some Catholic fanatics rebelled against the Monarchy dissenting the injustice against the Catholic church.

In keeping with the rule of King James 1, the Catholic religion came under fire. That was because the monarch preferred Protestants. A few Catholic men reciprocated by leveling the Houses of parliament.  

The contraption to be used for the bombing were barrels of gunpowder set underneath the structures. They were to be exploded the instant the king and other noblemen were in parliament.   

The bombing was scheduled for 5th November in 1605. The machinators hoped to murder the ruler in the process and other popular people inside the parliament blamed for persecuting Catholics.

The planned deed aborted when law enforcement learned of the conspiracy before Guy Fawkes could ignite the gunpowder. 

It is asserted that the non-success of the Gunpowder Plot was caused by falling out among the schemers. Certain plotters grew disturbed with the plot considering the devastation it would have wrought, and one of the conspirators cautioned the monarchy by sending an anonymous letter. 

The same evening, those faithful to the King toasted to the failed plot and his well-being by lighting bonfires and blasting fireworks. Since then, it became a frequent event that has seen many generations.    

Bonfire Night is commemorated as a memory of the ineffective effort by Catholic radical elements to kill the monarch and other monarchy officials in 1605. The night in addition functions as a reminder of the danger faced by leaders.   

You should note that Bonfire Night is not a recognized public holiday. It is more like a ritual commemorated by protestants more than Catholics whose faithful were responsible for the scheme.
