Remember, remember the fifth of November Gunpowder, treason and plot
Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Guy Fawkes Day, Bonfire Night and Firework Night, is an annual commemoration on the 5th of November in the United Kingdom.
Four hundred years ago, a man called Guy Fawkes and his fellow Roman Catholic conspirators plotted to blow up the Houses of Parliament to kill King James I. It was called the Gunpowder Plot. It failed, and to mark the event rag doll ‘Guys’ - an effigy of Guy Fawkes are burnt on the bonfire and fireworks are set off.
For most people, Guy Fawkes Day or Bonfire Night is a good excuse to have a firecracker of a party! People let off some fireworks and watch the flames of bonfires leaping into the night sky.
