Guy Fawkes Night  is commemorated each year  on November 5. It is at times labelled as Bonfire Night and marks the anniversary the discovery of a scheme put in motion by Catholic manipulators to pulverize the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605. The majority of people ignite bonfires and light up fireworks.

For you to know the reason why people honor Bonfire Night, then you must be informed of the bygone days.

The day originates 1605 to the Gunpowder Plot. That year, a few Catholic radicals went against the Monarch dissenting the injustice against Catholics.

In accordance to the leadership of King James 1, the Catholic religion came under attack. The reason was because the monarch preferred Protestants. A few Catholic men revenged by leveling the Houses of parliament.  

The instrument to be used for the bombing were kegs of gunpowder set under the structures. They were to be exploded the instant the king and other noblemen were within parliament.   

The bombing was planned for 5th November in 1605. The conspirators expected to murder the monarch in the act and other prominent figures in the building blamed for persecuting Catholics.

The planned deed was unsuccessful because the police unearthed the conspiracy before Guy Fawkes could detonate the gunpowder. 

It’s alleged that the non-success of the Gunpowder Plot was due to falling out between the planners. A few were uncomfortable with the plot because the devastation it would have wrought, and one of them notified the authority by sending an unacknowledged letter. 

The same evening, those devoted to the King rejoiced the botched plot and his welfare by lighting bonfires and lighting fireworks. Going forward, it became a habitual function that has been passed down the generations.    

Bonfire Night is observed as a memory of the botched attempt by Catholic extremists to murder the king and other sovereign agents in 1605. The night in addition functions as a warning of the risks faced by politicians.   

You should keep in mind that Bonfire Night isn’t a recognized public holiday. It is more of a custom remembered by protestants more than Catholics whose adherents were responsible for the plot.
