Guy Fawkes Day

5 November


The Gunpowder Plot


Guy Fawkes was an infamous insurgent involved in the Gunpowder Plot, trying to blow up British Parliament in 1605. He was arrested while guarding explosives placed beneath the House of Lords. 


Also known as Guy Fawkes Night, Bonfire Night or Firework Night, this annual event observed on 5 November celebrates the fact that King James I survived the terrorist attempt on his life. British loyalists lit bonfires around London that night, and months later an Observance of 5th November Act was passed by Parliament, creating an annual public day of thanksgiving for the plot's failure. 


Guy Fawkes Masks

The iconic version of the Guy Fawkes mask owes its popularity to the graphic novel and film V for Vendetta, which centers on a vigilante's efforts to destroy an authoritarian government in a dystopian future United Kingdom. Although he didn't predict the mask's role in popular protest, David Lloyd, the artist who illustrated the comic, told The New York Times, "It's a great symbol of protest for anyone who sees tyranny."
