Tonight is Guy Fawkes Night


Guy Fawkes Night is an annual commemoration observed on 5 November, primarily in the United Kingdom.

Its history begins with the events of 5 November 1605 when Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot, was arrested while guarding explosives the plotters had placed beneath the House of Lords.

Celebrating the fact that King James I had survived the attempt on his life, people lit bonfires around London; and months later, the introduction of the Observance of 5th November Act enforced an annual public day of thanksgiving for the plot's failure.
