    “Remember, remember!
    The fifth of November,
    The gunpowder treason and plot;
    I know of no reason
    Why the gunpowder treason
    Should ever be forgot!”

    This comes from Guy Fawkes Night in 1605 when he was arrested while guarding explosives placed beneath the House of Lords in Britain attempting to take the life if King James 1.

    Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Guy Fawkes Day, Bonfire Night and Firework Night, is an annual commemoration observed on 5 November, primarily in Great Britain. Its history begins with the events of 5 November 1605, when Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot, was arrested while guarding explosives the plotters had placed beneath the House of Lords. Celebrating the fact that King James I had survived the attempt on his life, people lit bonfires around London, and months later the introduction of the Observance of 5th November Act enforced an annual public day of thanksgiving for the plot’s failure.

    Guy Fawkes Day (or night) commemorating that the house of lords was not blown up as planned on that day. Guy Fawkes was a member of the plot who was arrested while guarding and thus ruining the plan.
