Favorite Bonfire Night GIFs & Images

A list of my favorite moving & still images of Bonfire Night (also known as Guy Fawkes Night, Guy Fawkes Day and Firework Night) - an annual commemoration observed on 5 November in the United Kingdom.


Its history begins with the events of 5 November 1605 when Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot to blow up King James I at the Houses of Parliament, was arrested while guarding explosives the plotters had placed beneath the House of Lords.

Celebrating the fact that King James I had survived the attempt on his life, people lit bonfires around London and months later the introduction of the Observance of 5th November Act enforced an annual public day of thanksgiving for the plot's failure throughout the United Kingdom.
