It is a celebration of the arrest and conviction of Guy (Guido) Fawkes who - with others - planned to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605. The date is known as Bonfire Night or Guy Fawkes night when an effigy of Guy Fawkes (a Guy) is burned on bonfires throughout the country and fireworks are also ignited in celebration. Guy Fawkes was put to death by being burned at the stake.

Its origins are a bit gruesome but most people don't think of the original reason for the celebration.
