Guy Fawkes Day / Night

Guy Fawkes Day/Night is celebrated on November 5th, primarily in the United Kingdom and former British Colonies. The holiday is also called Bonfire Night, Cracker Night and sometimes Fireworks Night. It is the celebration of a foiled explosive plot against the Houses of Parliament in 1605. Families gather to celebrate the defeat of Guy Fawkes and his other conspirators with fireworks and bonfires.

Bonfire Night is a uniquely British event when they “celebrate” the discovery of the Gunpowder Plot against the King and Parliament in the early 17th Century. In fact, nobody cares about the origins of the celebration anymore, but they all enjoy a good bonfire, firework display, and hot dogs and toffee apples on the 5th November each year!
