Guy Fawkes Night  is annually held  on November 5. It is also referred to as Bonfire Night and marks the day of observance of the revelation of a conspiracy coordinated by Catholic machinators to bomb the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605. Lots of people ignite bonfires and discharge fireworks.

For you to comprehend the rationale why celebrate Bonfire Night, then you must be informed of the history.

The day goes back to 1605 to the Gunpowder Plot. That year, certain Catholic radicals rebelled against the Monarch objecting the mistreatment of Catholics.

As per the leadership of King James 1, the Catholic Church was besotted. The justification for this was because the king favored Protestants. A group of catholic men reciprocated by flattening the Houses of parliament.  

The device to be used for the attack were casks of gunpowder placed beneath the house. They were to be exploded when the king and other representatives were in parliament.   

The assault was set for 5th November in 1605. The machinators expected to execute the monarch in the action in addition to other renowned officials inside the parliament culpable of tormenting Catholics.

The expected attack was botched when the police unearthed the scheme before Guy Fawkes could blast off the gunpowder. 

It is claimed that the non-success of the Gunpowder Plot was caused by disagreement between the conspirators. Some grew uncomfortable with the plot because the destruction it would have effected, and one of the conspirators cautioned the state by sending an anonymous note. 

The very same evening, those loyal to the Monarch rejoiced the botched plot and his welfare by lighting bonfires and exploding fireworks. From that time, it became a regular occasion that has come down generations.    

Bonfire Night is honored as a tribute of the ineffective undertaking by Catholic radical elements to assassinate the monarch and other monarchy agents in 1605. The night also serves as a warning of the risks faced by statesmen.   

You should note that Bonfire Night is not an official public holiday. It is closer to a ceremony celebrated by protestants more than Catholics whose adherents were responsible for the plot.
