Hoy y todo la noche y en todo los partes de Reino Unido estan celebrando Guy Fawkes night
Guy Fawkes
(York, 1570-Londres, 1606) Militar y conspirador inglés. Tras convertirse al catolicismo, fue el principal cabecilla de la Conspiración de la Pólvora, siendo arrestado en los sótanos del parlamento el día antes de llevar a cabo sus propósitos.
Guy Fawkes, que estaba en la cámara con los 36 barriles de pólvora, fue detenido "in fraganti" por las fuerzas del rey en la mañana del 5 de noviembre, fue torturado y posteriormente ejecutado.
Por eso cada año, en el aniversario del "Complot de la Pólvora", hay hogueras y fugos artificiales y petardos, tanto organizados por los ayuntamientos como mas pequeñas en todo los barrios.

400th year's anniversary today Nov 5, 2005

I think you forgot to mention that today was the exact 400th year anniversary of this event.
Anyone interested, see also a related article in this week's Economist.
