Guy Fawkes Night in the UK
On the night of November 5, the annual Guy Fawkes Night, also known as the Night of Bonfires or Fireworks Night, was held in the UK. The unofficial holiday marks the failure of the Powder Conspiracy, when a group of Catholic conspirators attempted to blow up the British Parliament in London on the night of November 5, 1605, during the protest speech of the Protestant King Jacob I, when, besides him, members of both Houses of Parliament were present in the House of Lords and supreme representatives of the country's judiciary.
Guy Fox tried to set fire to barrels of gunpowder in the basement of the Palace of Westminster. One of the accomplices warned the royal lord William Parker, the 4th Baron Montigl, of the planned explosion and told him not to come to the palace the next day. He decided to save not only his life, but also the royal life. He warned the king, and the next day Guy was arrested and taken to the Tower.
In the UK, fireworks and bonfires are lit on the night of Guy Fawkes, and Guy Fawkes's effigy is burned on it.And on the eve of the children begging coins "for a great guy Guy" to buy firecrackers.
