So why do we celebrate Bonfire Night?

Well, Guy Fawkes is the notorious terrorist behind the The Gunpowder Plot back in 1605. The Gunpowder plot was a failed attempt to blow up England's King James I (1566-1625) and the Houses of Parliament on November 5, 1605. ... Around midnight on November 4, 1605, one of the conspirators, known as Guy Fawkes (1570-1606), was discovered in the cellar of the Parliament building with barrels of gunpowder. Luckily, the plot was foiled. We celebrate Bonfire night as a way of celebrating that King James I survived an attack on his life. It's to remember events that happened 400+ years ago! Remember, remember the 5th of November, gunpowder, treason and plot. To learn more about Guy Fawkes click here.
