Guy Fawkes Night  is annually held  on November 5. It is at times known as Bonfire Night and celebrates the day of observance of the revelation of a plan controlled by Catholic conspirators to pulverize the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605. The majority of participants ignite bonfires and touch off fireworks.

For you to grasp why we honor Bonfire Night, then you are supposed to know the past.

The day dates back to early 17th Century to the Gunpowder Plot. That year, certain Catholic radicals rebelled against the King disapproving the mistreatment of Catholics.

Under the command of King James 1, Catholics was attacked. This unfolded due to the fact that the monarchy backed Protestants. A group of catholic men revenged by detonating the Houses of parliament.  

The contraption to be used for the attack were barrels of gunpowder situated under the assembly. They were to be sparked the moment the king and other noblemen were inside parliament.   

The attack was set for 5th November in 1605. The conspirers hoped to kill the king in the process in addition to other noted statesmen in the structure guilty of oppressing the Catholic faithful.

The planned action did not go through as expected when the police found out about the plot before Guy Fawkes could blow up the gunpowder. 

It is rumored that the collapse of the Gunpowder Plot was as a result of squabbles between the schemers. Certain plotters became disturbed with the approach as a result of the damage it would have effected, and one of the conspirators cautioned the rulers by sending an unsigned letter. 

The same evening, those dedicated to the Monarchy toasted to the aborted plot and his well-being by lighting bonfires and exploding fireworks. From that time, it turned out to be a frequent occasion that has come down generations.    

Bonfire Night is commemorated as a recognition of the botched undertaking by Catholic zealots to slay the monarch and other monarchy officers in 1605. The evening also is an indication of the hazards faced by statesmen.   

You should not forget that Bonfire Night isn’t a formal public holiday. It’s closer to a ritual remembered by protestants more than Catholics whose adherents were responsible for the scheme.
