“Remember, remember the 5th of November”

Gina Bagnulo News Editor, The Pawprint

The 5th of November marks a very interesting day in the history of political affairs and uprisings. 

“Guy Fawkes Night”, also known as Guy Fawkes Day, Bonfire Night and Firework Night, is a yearly commemoration observed on the 5th of November, primarily in the United Kingdom. November 5th was branded as the day radical Guy Fawkes attempted to blow up the British Parliament in London. 

Guy Fawkes Night can be traced back to the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, a failed conspiracy by a group of English Catholics to assassinate Protestant King James I of England and put a Catholic head of state in charge of the nation. 

Many films and people have remembered this day. Guy Fawkes Night has been depicted in films such as “V for Vendetta” This day will continue to go down in history.
