Guy Fawkes was strapped to a wooden chair and had a bonfire erected to surround him. The fire was a public display to warn future copycats of the penalty associated with these types of actions.
Each year, since this date, English people hace celebrated this holiday. Children will make a "guy" and take him door-to-door in their wagons, collecting fireworks for the big day. Much like the American Halloween tradition. Then the families get together and build big bonfires and throw in their fireworks and "guys". As they "guys" are tossed into the fire, they yell "Burn, you bloody bastard!"
"Guys" today resemble somone in dis-trust with the British people, very common to be political figures.
