Guy Fawkes Night (Guy Fawkes night 'in English), also known as Bonfire Night or Fireworks Night (the night bonfires "or" fireworks ") or Plot Night (the night of conspiracy "), is a feast of original anti-Catholic celebrated on November 5, initially in the United Kingdom but also, by extension, in some countries of the former British Empire, for example, New Zealand, Africa South and Newfoundland.
This festival commemorates the failure of the Gunpowder Plot, a conspiracy of a group of Catholics led by Robert Catesby to blow, November 5, 1605, at the presence of the Protestant King Jacques I, the Westminster Parliament with thirty-six barrels of gunpowder.
Everywhere we see fireworks and built some "fireworks". An effigy representing the most famous member of the Gunpowder Plot, Guy Fawkes, is built on top of pyres.
In recent years, various objects symbolizing the evils of the year are added to the fuel to burn the effigy. At dusk, bonfires are burning and children begging a penny for the guy.
