Guy Fawkes Night  is commemorated each year  on November 5. It is also nicknamed Bonfire Night and observes the remembrance the disclosure of a strategy contrived by Catholic machinators to explode the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605. The majority of participants light bonfires and discharge fireworks.

For you to discern the rationale why celebrate Bonfire Night, then you must learn the former times.

The day dates back to fifth year of the seventeenth century to the Gunpowder Plot. That year, a crew of Catholic revolutionaries went against the Crown challenging the persecution of Catholics.

As per the reign of King James 1, Catholics came under attack. That was on account of the fact that the king supported Protestants. A group of catholic men decided to retaliate by bombing the Houses of parliament.  

The weapon to be used for the attack were drums of gunpowder located under the building. They were to be exploded the instant the king and other office holders were in the confines of parliament.   

The bombing was expected on 5th November in 1605. The people behind the plot hoped to execute the ruler in the act in addition to other prominent figures in the building responsible for persecuting the Catholic church.

The expected action was unsuccessful since law enforcement unearthed the conspiracy before Guy Fawkes could blast off the gunpowder. 

It’s claimed that the non-success of the Gunpowder Plot arose from differences between the people involved. A section of the planners were uncomfortable with the approach due to the damage it would have brought, and one of them forewarned the state by sending an unacknowledged letter. 

The same evening, those faithful to the Monarch celebrated the botched strategy and his welfare by lighting bonfires and blasting fireworks. Since then, it became a habitual event that has entertained lots of generations.    

Bonfire Night is celebrated as a memory of the botched undertaking by Catholic conspirators to kill the monarch and other monarchy officials in 1605. The evening also functions as a pointer of the risks faced by leaders.   

You should not forget that Bonfire Night is not a formal public holiday. It is closer to a tradition remembered by protestants more than Catholics whose faithful were responsible for the plot.
