Guy Fawkes Night  is annually held  on November 5. It is at times nicknamed Bonfire Night and marks the anniversary the unearthing of a plan contrived by Catholic connivers to bomb the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605. Many participants light bonfires and explode fireworks.

For you to discern why we celebrate Bonfire Night, then you should be aware of the history.

The celebration can be traced to fifth year of the seventeenth century to the Gunpowder Plot. That year, certain Catholic revolutionaries rebelled against the King dissenting the persecution of Catholics.

In keeping with the reign of King James 1, Catholics came under attack. The justification for this was due to the fact that the monarch favored Protestants. Some Catholic men countered by bombing the Houses of parliament.  

The material to be used for the bombing were containers of gunpowder set beneath the structures. They were to be detonated once the king and other office bearers were in the confines of parliament.   

The bombing was expected on 5th November in 1605. The conspirers expected to murder the monarch in the melee plus other prominent officers within the parliament blamed for persecuting Catholics.

The expected devastation did not go through as expected since law officers unearthed the conspiracy before Guy Fawkes could ignite the gunpowder. 

It’s opined that the collapse of the Gunpowder Plot was caused by squabbles between the people involved. Some became uncomfortable with the plot because the losses it would have effected, and one of the conspirators forewarned the state by sending an anonymous letter. 

That evening, those faithful to the Monarch celebrated the failed conspiracy and his well-being by lighting bonfires and lighting fireworks. From then, it turned out to be a frequent occasion that has been passed down the generations.    

Bonfire Night is commemorated as a remembrance of the failed effort by Catholic zealots to kill the king and other monarchy officers in 1605. The evening also acts as a warning of the danger faced by leaders.   

You should note that Bonfire Night is not a recognized public holiday. It is nearer to a practice honored by protestants more than Catholics whose followers were responsible for the plot.
