This is also known as Bonfire Night. Guy Fawkes was a leader of a group of Catholic men who, on this day in 1605, were plotting to blow up the king and Parliament but were arrested in time. The English and Irish burn bonfires topped by a figure known as the guy. West Indians from the Bahamas and Barbados celebrate it as well.
