Guy Fawkes Night  is annually held  on November 5. It is occasionally labelled as Bonfire Night and celebrates the remembrance the unearthing of a conspiracy coordinated by Catholic schemers to level the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605. Many individuals ignite bonfires and trigger fireworks.

For you to understand the reason why people honor Bonfire Night, then you should be aware of the bygone days.

The night dates back to fifth year of the seventeenth century to the Gunpowder Plot. That year, some Catholic zealots went against the Monarchy objecting the persecution of Catholics.

In accordance to the rule of King James 1, Catholics was besotted. This unfolded on account of the fact that the monarch supported Protestants. Some Catholic men retaliated by blowing up the Houses of parliament.  

The weapon to be used for the devastation were casks of gunpowder located beneath the structures. They were to be detonated while the king and other office bearers were within parliament.   

The bombing was scheduled for 5th November in 1605. The connivers hoped to execute the king in the action including other renowned people within the house blamed for persecuting the Catholic faithful.

The expected devastation did not go through as expected after law officers became aware of the scheme before Guy Fawkes could blast off the gunpowder. 

It is claimed that the defeat of the Gunpowder Plot was caused by falling out between the planners. Some were uncomfortable with the strategy because the damage it would have effected, and one of the plotters cautioned the monarchy by sending an anonymous letter. 

That night, those devoted to the Monarchy toasted to the unsuccessful strategy and his welfare by starting bonfires and setting off fireworks. From that day, it evolved into a regular affair that has seen many generations.    

Bonfire Night is observed as a memory of the failed effort by Catholic extremists to murder the king and other government agents in 1605. The evening also serves as a pointer of the danger faced by statesmen.   

You should remember that Bonfire Night is not a formal public holiday. It is more of a practice commemorated by protestants more than Catholics whose faithful were responsible for the plan.
