Guy Fawkes Night  is annually held  on November 5. It is sometimes labelled as Bonfire Night and honors the day of observance of the disclosure of a scheme contrived by Catholic schemers to pulverize the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605. Many people light bonfires and touch off fireworks.

For you to identify with the rationale why honor Bonfire Night, then you should know the the yesteryears.

The day can be traced to 1605 to the Gunpowder Plot. That year, some Catholic zealots rebelled against the King objecting the injustice against the Catholic church.

Going by the rule of King James 1, the Catholic religion came under fire. That was given that the monarchy preferred Protestants. Some Catholic men retaliated by detonating the Houses of parliament.  

The instrument to be used for the devastation were kegs of gunpowder put beneath the building. They were to be detonated the instant the king and other office bearers were inside parliament.   

The bombing was expected on 5th November in 1605. The conspirators intended to slay the king in the act and other prominent statesmen within the building responsible for persecuting Catholics.

The planned attack failed because the police found out about the ploy before Guy Fawkes could blast off the gunpowder. 

It’s asserted that the collapse of the Gunpowder Plot was due to squabbles among the schemers. Some grew uncomfortable with the approach considering the damage it would have brought, and one of the plotters forewarned the authority by sending an anonymous note. 

That night, those dedicated to the Monarch rejoiced the failed plan and his welfare by starting bonfires and blasting fireworks. Going forward, it evolved into a regular function that has entertained lots of generations.    

Bonfire Night is celebrated as a remembrance of the unsuccessful effort by Catholic conspirators to assassinate the king and other government officials in 1605. The evening also is a reminder of the hazards faced by statesmen.   

You should not forget that Bonfire Night is not a formal public holiday. It is nearer to a practice commemorated by protestants more than Catholics whose followers were responsible for the plan.
