Guy Fawkes Day, also called Bonfire Night, is celebrated on November 5, commemorating the failure of the Gunpowder Plot of 1605. The Gunpowder Plot conspirators, led by Robert Catesby, were zealous Roman Catholics enraged at King James I for refusing to grant greater religious tolerance to Catholics. Traditionally, Guy Fawkes is celebrated with a bonfire and fireworks (though not in Bermuda because fireworks aren’t legal without a license).
