3 Delicious Bonfire Recipes

It’s Bonfire Night again

A time when we meet to watch bonfires burn and fireworks light up the sky, while we are warmly wrapped in snuggly hats and gloves.

But the celebratory atmosphere is a far cry from the origins of 5 November.

Guy (Guido) Fawkes, from York, and fellow conspirators, rented out a house close to the Houses of Parliament and smuggled 36 barrels of gunpowder into a cellar of the House of Lords. That was enough to completely destroy the building!

The plot began to unravel when an anonymous letter was sent to William Parker, the 4th Baron Monteagle, warning him to avoid the House of Lords. The letter was made public and this led to a search of Westminster Palace in the early hours of 5 November.

Fawkes was the explosive expert, and it was he who had been left in the cellars to set off the fuse. He was caught when a group of guards discovered him at the last moment.

Parliament declared 5 November a national day of thanksgiving, and the first celebration of it took place in 1606.
