O 5 de novembro de 1605 un grupo de católicos, entre os que se atopaba Guy Fawkes, tentaron matar ó rey Xaime I, que era protestante. Para facelo, puxeron unha bomba no pazo de Westminster, sede do Parlamento en Londres. Pero foron descubertos e Guy Fawkes foi executado.

Para festexar esta data, na noite do 5 de novembro os británicos celebran a “Noite das fogueiras”. A xente contrúe fogueiras e prepara bonecos de Guy Fawkes con ropa vella e periódicos. Chámanse “guys” e a xente poñeos nas fogueiras para queimalos. Tamén botan grandes cantidades de fogos de artificio. Agora “guy” tradúcese por “persoa” ou “xente” (“guys”).

On 5th November 1605  a man called Guy Fawkes tried to kill King James I. The King was Protestant  and Guy Fawkes was Catholic. He put a bomb under the Houses of Parliament, in London, but he was discovered and  executed.

To commemorate this, in the evening of  5th November people all over Britain celebrate Bonfire Night. People build bonfires and make effigies of Guy Fawkes with old clothes and newspapers. These are called “guys” and people put them on the bonfires to burn them. They also light lots of fireworks. Nowadays “guy” means “person” or “man”.

Here you have a famous rhyme about Bonfire Night.

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,I know of* no reasonWhy the Gunpowder TreasonShould ever be forgot.Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t’was his intentTo blow up the King and Parli’ment.Three-score barrels of powder belowTo prove old England’s overthrow;By God’s providence he was catch’d (or by God’s mercy*)With a dark lantern and burning match.Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring. (Holla*)Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!Recordade, recordade o 5 de novembro
a traizón da pólvora e a conspiración.
Non hai razón pola que debamos esquecer endexamais
a traizón da pólvora.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes foi o que o intentou.
Voar polos aires ó Rei e ó Parlamento.
60 barrís de pólvora debaixo
para intentar derrocar á vella Inglaterra.
Grazas a Deus foi capturado
cunha lámpada cuberta e un facho nas mans.
Veña, rapaces. Veña, rapaces. Deixade que soen as campás.
Veña, rapaces. Veña, rapaces. Deus salve ó Rei.
¡Hip hip Hurra!
