  22. 22. INFORMATION FESTIVALS NOVEMBER <ul><li>GUY FAWKES DAY: November 5. Memorializes the failed Gunpowder Plot of 1605 in which Guy Fawkes and others attempted to blow up the King and Parliament. At the time Catholics who refused to attend services of the Church of England (recusants) were considered traitors and persecuted. When James I accended the throne the Catholics were hopeful, for he had promised not to collect the fines against the recusants, but instead of keeping his promises he continued to execute the severe laws against them. Fawkes, who was Roman Catholic, joined with veteran conspritors Robert Catesby and others in a plot to blow up the whole Parliament, king and lords included. A vault directly under the House of Lords was conveniently for rent, and Fawkes took it. They filled it with 36 barrels of gunpowder and waited for parliament to meet, which was delayed several times and finally set to be November 5th. In the mean time disagreements broke out among the conspirators because the Catholic lords and members of parliament would be killed in addition to the king and other intended victims. Ten days before Parliament opened, a Catholic lord who was friend to several of the conspiritors received an anonymous tip not to attend, for &quot;they shall receyve a terrible blowe this parleament&quot;. He relayed his message to the king. Despite warnings that all was found out, Fawkes remained determined to see the plot through, but was discovered on the day of the planned plot. To reveal the names of his partners, Fawkes was tortured in accordance with the King's letter which said, &quot;If he will not otherwise confess, the gentlest tortures are to be first used to him, and so on, step by step, to the most severe, and so God speed the good work.&quot; All the conspirators were hanged if not killed in the act of being taken, and the laws against recusants were made more severe. The fifth of November was ordered to be a day of Thankgiving by an Act that lasted over two hundred years. The eve of this day is known in some areas of England as. </li></ul><ul><li>LORD MAYOR´S DAY: The annual installation of the Lord Mayor of the City of London. The Lord Mayor is elected on Michaelmas, September 29, by the aldermen sworn into office on November 8, and installed on the following day. The celebration includes a procession of the Lord Mayor and his retinue from the Guild Hall to the Law Courts, andlater to Westminster . </li></ul>CONSULTAR OTRO MES
