Guy Fawkes Night sometimes referred to as Bonfire Night which comes up yearly on November 5 is a time to celebrate the anniversary of a discovered conspiracy set up by catholic conspirators to explode the Houses of Parliament in London in 1605. There are scenes of fireworks set off and bonfires are lightened up.

Is Guy Fawkes Day a Public Holiday?

It could be concluded that since businesses and organizations have their usual opening schedules active on Guy Fawkes Day, it is therefore not a public holiday.

Guy Fawkes Day, additionally called Bonfire Night, British recognition, celebrated on November 5, honoring the disappointment of the Gunpowder Plot of 1605. 

What to Do?

This is a season for fireworks and bonfires for most people. Since it is the end of autumn, this is the perfect time to get garden rubbish burnt. Others light smaller bonfires in their gardens, while larger ones are lit at communal spaces. In some cities and towns, there are professional firework displays and bonfire organized by the municipalities, thereby making it very popular. Since this event occurs close to Halloween, a combined party is organized by most people for Halloween and Guy Fawkes Night. Elements from the two festivals are included in these parties, including appearing in spooky outfits and lighting up bonfires. Some popular foods during these events include bonfire toffee, baked potatoes in ashes of the fire, and toffee apples. 

Historically, Guy Fawkes was a Catholic who was arrested, anguished, and executed for being part of those that plotted the plans to destroy the Houses of Parliament. This makes the Catholics more cautious about this day. Additionally, when the fireworks are used wrongly, it leads to most injuries and deaths. Thus, safety campaigners consistently call for the restriction of firework sales even beyond the present and to organize additional professional displays. 

Today Guy Fawkes Day is commended in the United Kingdom, and in various nations that were previously part of the British Empire, with processions, firecrackers, blazes, and sustenance. Straw models of Fawkes are hurled on the campfire, as seem to be - in later years in certain spots - those of contemporary political figures. Customarily, kids conveyed these likenesses, called "Folks," through the avenues in the days paving the way to Guy Fawkes Day and approached bystanders for "a penny for the person," regularly presenting rhymes related with the event, the best known about which dates from the eighteenth century: 

Remember, remember, the fifth of November
Gunpowder treason and plot
We see no reason
Why Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot….
