Bonfire Night is an annual event dedicated to bonfires, fireworks and celebrations. Different traditions celebrate Bonfire Night on different days. Some of the most popular instances include the United Kingdom's Guy Fawkes Night, which is also celebrated in some Commonwealth countries.
In Great Britain, Bonfire Night is associated with the tradition of Guy Fawkes' Night. The modern event is held annually on or near 5 November, although its sectarian
significance has generally been lost: it is now simply a night of
revelry and fireworks.
Celebrations are held throughout Great Britain,
in parts of Northern Ireland, and in some other parts of the
Commonwealth. In Canada, 5 November is commemorated with bonfires and
firework displays, and it is officially celebrated in South Africa.
