Guy Fawkes Night  is annually held  on November 5. It is sometimes labelled as Bonfire Night and marks the day of observance of the discovery of a plot coordinated by Catholic connivers to explode the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605. Many people ignite bonfires and touch off fireworks.

For you to understand the reason why people memorialise Bonfire Night, then you must know the the yesteryears.

The celebration goes back to 1605 to the Gunpowder Plot. That year, some Catholic extremists rose against the King dissenting the oppression of the Catholic church.

Going by the jurisdiction of King James 1, the Catholic Church came under fire. This unfolded due to the fact that the monarchy was in favor of Protestants. A group of catholic men retaliated by leveling the Houses of parliament.  

The material to be used for the devastation were barrels of gunpowder situated under the structures. They were to be exploded while the king and other noblemen were inside parliament.   

The attack was expected on 5th November in 1605. The schemers desired to kill the monarch in the action and other renowned statesmen in the building responsible for persecuting Catholics.

The scheduled devastation was ineffective after the police learned of the scheme before Guy Fawkes could blast off the gunpowder. 

It is rumored that the non-success of the Gunpowder Plot was due to misunderstanding among the schemers. A section of the planners became apprehensive with the strategy due to the destruction it would have wrought, and one of them forewarned the monarchy by sending an unacknowledged letter. 

The very same night, those devoted to the Monarchy jubilated the unsuccessful conspiracy and his safety by lighting bonfires and lighting fireworks. From that time, it evolved into a frequent function that has been passed down the generations.    

Bonfire Night is commemorated as a tribute of the abortive endeavor by Catholic fanatics to kill the king and other state officials in 1605. The evening also acts as an indication of the risks faced by politicians.   

You should not forget that Bonfire Night isn’t a formal public holiday. It’s more of a ceremony commemorated by protestants more than Catholics whose faithful were responsible for the plot.
