Guy Fawkes Night  is commemorated each year  on November 5. It is also labelled as Bonfire Night and celebrates the day of observance of the disclosure of a scheme organized by Catholic manipulators to obliterate the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605. Lots of participants light bonfires and touch off fireworks.

For you to know the reason why people honor Bonfire Night, then you should be informed of the former times.

The day can be traced to early 17th Century to the Gunpowder Plot. That year, a few Catholic radicals decided to take action against the Monarch dissenting the injustice against Catholics.

Under the jurisdiction of King James 1, the Catholic religion was assailed. The reason was because the monarchy favored Protestants. A few Catholic men decided to retaliate by detonating the Houses of parliament.  

The material to be used for the devastation were barrels of gunpowder set under the house. They were to be exploded once the king and other officials were inside parliament.   

The offensive was scheduled for 5th November in 1605. The plotters desired to kill the king in the act and other popular officers within the house responsible for persecuting Catholics.

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

It is claimed that the collapse of the Gunpowder Plot was caused by disagreement between the schemers. Certain plotters grew uneasy with the method because the losses it would have brought, and one of the conspirators informed the rulers by sending an unacknowledged note. 

That evening, those loyal to the Monarchy rejoiced the unsuccessful plan and his well-being by starting bonfires and blasting fireworks. From that time, it evolved into a habitual affair that has been passed down the generations.    

Bonfire Night is commemorated as a tribute of the failed attempt by Catholic zealots to kill the king and other government representatives in 1605. The evening in addition functions as a reminder of the perils faced by statesmen.   

You should not forget that Bonfire Night isn’t a formal public holiday. It is more of a tradition honored by protestants more than Catholics whose followers were responsible for the conspiracy.
