Guy Fawkes Night  is commemorated each year  on November 5. It is sometimes known as Bonfire Night and observes the remembrance the discovery of a plot organized by Catholic schemers to pulverize the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605. Many folks ignite bonfires and explode fireworks.

For you to discern why we memorialise Bonfire Night, then you are supposed to be aware of the history.

The day originates fifth year of the seventeenth century to the Gunpowder Plot. That year, certain Catholic zealots rose against the Monarchy in protest against the persecution of Catholics.

Under the rule of King James 1, Catholics came under fire. The reason was because the monarchy backed Protestants. A few Catholic men countered by blowing up the Houses of parliament.  

The material to be used for the devastation were kegs of gunpowder placed underneath the building. They were to be exploded the moment the king and other noblemen were inside parliament.   

The offensive was expected on 5th November in 1605. The conspirers hoped to execute the ruler in the process and other prominent officers inside the parliament guilty of oppressing the Catholic faithful.

The scheduled assault was unsuccessful after the police became aware of the ploy before Guy Fawkes could detonate the gunpowder. 

It is rumored that the defeat of the Gunpowder Plot was due to squabbles among the planners. Some became apprehensive with the plot due to the damage it would have caused, and one of them cautioned the state by sending an unsigned letter. 

The very same evening, those dedicated to the Monarchy celebrated the unsuccessful plot and his safety by starting bonfires and blasting fireworks. From that day, it grew to be a habitual affair that has been passed down the generations.    

Bonfire Night is honored as a remembrance of the ineffective attempt by Catholic fanatics to do away with the monarch and other monarchy officials in 1605. The evening in addition acts as a warning of the perils faced by statesmen.   

You should not forget that Bonfire Night is not a recognized public holiday. It is closer to a ceremony commemorated by protestants more than Catholics whose adherents were responsible for the conspiracy.
