The Story behind Guy Fawkes night …..

November 5 is traditionally Bonfire Night, when we celebrate the foiling of Guy Fawkes’ attempt to blow up the King and the Houses of Parliament.

In 1605, he was found with a large amount of gunpowder, after hatching a detailed plot to kill the monarch. When the plan failed, members of the public celebrated by lighting bonfires around London.

The traditions established then survive to this day, with the lighting of bonfires and the burning of Guy Fawkes effigies across the country.


Until da next Tyme
