Who celebrates 05/11?
Bonfire or Guy Fawkes Night is an annual celebration on the evening of 5 November. It marks the downfall of the Gunpowder Plot of 5 November 1605, in which a number of Catholic conspirators, including Guy Fawkes, attempted to destroy the Houses of Parliament and kill King James I, in London (England).
Guy Fawkes had rolled 36 barrels of gun powder into the cellars and was waiting for the King when guards broke in and arrested him. They were tortured in the tower of London and killed.
It is also known as: Cracker Night, Fireworks Night, Bonty Night, Epic Fail Guy Night.
It has not been celebrated in Australia since the 1970s.
