November 5th commemorates the failure of the November 1605 Gunpowder Plot by a gang of Roman Catholic activists led by Warwickshire-born Robert Catesby. Guy Fawkes and his fellow conspirators, having rented out a house closed to the Houses of Parliament, managed to smuggle 36 barrels of gunpowder into a cellar of the House of Lords - enough to completely destroy the building. Following the failed plot, Parliament declared November 5th a national day of thanksgiving, and the first celebration of it took place in 1606.

Since the month of November started. It's new to me cause we only have firework at home during New Year! :)

You really do need to write your posts entirely in your own words. Ones like this sail very close to plagiarism and I wouldn't want you to get your account delisted because of what some would see as cheating.
