Guy Fawkes and Bonfire NightGuy Fawkes and B
November is known as Bonfire Night or Guy Fawkes Night.
Fawkes was born on 13 April 1570 in York, and died on 31 January
1606 in London.
was alive during the end of Queen Elizabeth I’s reign, and the
beginning of King James I’s reign.
Fawkes was a Catholic, and didn’t agree with the Protestant faith
of the King.
became friends with Robert Catesby, who had an idea to kill the King
by blowing up the houses of Parliament.
was actually Robert Catesby who led the Gunpowder Plot, not Guy
Fawkes – there were 13 people involved.
job Guy Fawkes had in the Gunpowder Plot was to guard the 36 barrels
of gunpowder that had been stored in a basement underneath the House
Fawkes was arrested in the basement on the day he was going to light
the gunpowder, 5 November, and he was taken to the Tower of London.
James I decreed that 5 November should be the day that people always
celebrate that the Gunpowder Plot didn’t happen.
Bonfire Night, grown-ups set off fireworks, light bonfires, and
sometimes burn a doll that looks like Guy Fawkes.
