Remember, remember the fifth of November,
Gunpowder treason and plot.
We see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
Happy Bonfire Night 🔥 Love this shot by @yorkshireincolour from York, England - the birthplace in 1570 of the infamous Guy Fawkes!
Today we commemorate the failure of The Gunpowder Plot, an attempt to blow up England’s King James I (1566-1625) and the Parliament on November 5, 1605. Around midnight on November 4th 1605, one of the conspirators, Guy Fawkes (1570-1606), was discovered in the cellar of the Parliament building with barrels of gunpowder. Fawkes and other men involved in the plot were tried and executed for treason. Every November 5th, the British celebrate Guy Fawkes Day by burning Fawkes in effigy and setting off tons of fireworks. Aye, it's a bit gruesome when you come to think of it.
But everyone these days enjoys it for lovely reasons - huge firework displays, massive bonfires and lip smacking food such as jacket potatoes burnt to a crisp in the fire, parkin cake and sticky toffee apples!
Have a lovely day! Super shot by @yorkshireincolour 🇬🇧 To be featured, follow and tag us! ‘Ta! 🇬🇧
