About the Holiday

Guy Fawkes Day is holiday also known as Gunpowder Day. It commemorates the Gunpowder Conspiracy on November 5th, 1605 led by none other than Guy Fawkes, a member of a group of Roman Catholic restorationists who formed the plot. The Gunpowder Conspirators of England, in an effort to replace Protestant rule, were attempting to blow up Parliament when they were caught with 36 barrels of readied gunpowder. Needless to say, a stop was put to their plan, and they were brought to justice.

Oddly enough, member countries of the United Kingdom celebrate this holiday with bonfires and fireworks. Many in England consider this day to be their version of Halloween.
