- Guy Fawkes Night/ Bonfire Night -


BONFIRE NIGHT, GUY FAWKES NIGHT WHAT IS IT?

An annual commemoration observed on 05 November in Great-Britain.

On 05 November 1605, Guy Fawkes, a Catholic, was arrested for trying to assassinate the Protestant King James I of England and blowing up Parliament, by putting explosives under the House of Lords. He didn�??t succeed and was arrested and executed for treason.

Even though the true story behind the celebration is serious and sad, Bonfire Night is traditionally celebrated as a night of fun and fireworks and Guy Fawkes has come to symbolise the anti-establishment protest movement. The Guy Fawkes mask is worn by protestors around the world and the story inspired the graphic novel and film, V-for-Vendetta.
