Bonfire night

In November 1605, the infamous Gunpowder Plot took place .Some Catholics plotted to blow up the English Parliament and King James l, on the day set for the king to open Parliament. The men were angry because the king had treated them badly and they didn't like it.
The story is remembered each 5th November when 'Guys' are burned in a celebration known as "Bonfire Night".There are big firework displays and bonfires.People cook potatoes in the bonfire.they celebrate the defeat of Guy Fawkes
There are many famous rhymes about this date:
"Remember, remember,
the fifth of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
We see no reason why
Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!"
