Guy Fawkes Night  takes place yearly  on November 5. It is also called Bonfire Night and celebrates the day of observance of the discovery of a plot coordinated by Catholic machinators to blow up the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605. Lots of individuals start bonfires and set off fireworks.

For you to understand the reason why people observe Bonfire Night, then you are supposed to know the history.

The evening can be traced to fifth year of the seventeenth century to the Gunpowder Plot. That year, certain Catholic revolutionaries took action against the King objecting the mistreatment of the Catholic church.

In keeping with the reign of King James 1, Catholics came under attack. The justification for this was given that the monarch favored Protestants. Some Catholic men reacted by flattening the Houses of parliament.  

The contraption to be used for the deed were containers of gunpowder set under the house. They were to be lit the instant the king and other office bearers were in parliament.   

The assault was planned for 5th November in 1605. The plotters anticipated to kill the king in the process and other famous people in the house guilty of oppressing the Catholic church.

The expected devastation did not go through as expected when state officials found out about the ploy before Guy Fawkes could light the gunpowder. 

It is claimed that the non-success of the Gunpowder Plot arose from differences between the schemers. Certain plotters became apprehensive with the strategy due to the destruction it would have wrought, and one of the plotters notified the authority by sending an unsigned note. 

The very same evening, those loyal to the Monarchy celebrated the failed plot and his safety by starting bonfires and blasting fireworks. Since then, it became a habitual event that has come down generations.    

Bonfire Night is celebrated as a remembrance of the unsuccessful effort by Catholic fanatics to murder the king and other state officials in 1605. The night in addition is an indication of the danger faced by rulers.   

You should note that Bonfire Night isn’t a legal public holiday. It’s more like a practice honored by protestants more than Catholics whose followers were responsible for the conspiracy.
