Bonfire Night The History In 1605 King James I was on the throne. He was a Protestant and he

hated Catholics... James ordered all Catholic priests to leave the country. The History Guy Fawks and some of his friends decided to do away with the King

and the Members of Parliament who were making life difficult for Catholics. On the 5th of November he tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament. Guy Fawkes Plan The plotters rolled 36

barrels of gunpowder into the cellar, just under the House of Lords. The idea was to set off the gunpowder as soon as the King opened the new

session of Parliament on the fifth of November. The Plot was Discovered It became clear that some innocent people would be hurt or killed in the attack.

One of the group members sent an anonymous letter warning his friend Lord Monteagle (to stay away). The warning letter reached the King. The plot was discovered. The arrest In the early hours of the

fifth of November, Guy Fawkes, who was hiding in the cellar with the 36 barrels of gunpowder, was arrested and taken to the Tower of London. He was tortured there. He confessed.

Finally he was executed on the 31st of January, 1606. Traditions Boys and girls make a dummy and call it Guy.

They take old clothes and stuff them with straw or newspapers. Traditions Then they march their Guy through

the streets asking people for money: A penny for the Guy, mister? If they collect enough money, they go and buy fireworks rockets, sparklers

and the like. Traditions When it gets dark, everyone, children and adults, make a huge bonfire and burn the dummy on it.

As the dummy burns up, fireworks are set off and everyone chants a rhyme. The Rhyme Remember, remember The fifth of November,

Gunpowder treason and plot. We see no reason Why gunpowder treason Should ever be forgot. Food Special foods go with the bonfire and the festivities:
