Guy Fawkes night is celebrated because Parliment was saved from being blown up. It also reminds us that people have the real power, not the government, for a group of ordinary people came inches from blowing up the government.

9/11 isn't celebrated because 3000 people died in terrorist attacks by foreigners, who did it because their millennia old text finds fault with people who live half a world away and have never personally met or been slighted by.

We celebrate Guy Fawkes' day (originally) because of his failed attempt at blowing up the parliament. So no, no, **** NO. It's NOT like celebrating Osama Bin Laden day because that asshole actually managed to succesfully conduct a terrorist attack.

Guy Fawkes failed -> We celebrate that he failed.

Only reason people misinterpret 5th of November is because of V for Vendetta. V is fighting a corrupt and fascist government so in that situation V is actually a hero and the government is the bad guy.

Also I think Guy Fawkes is just a symbol for anonymous and people regard the 5th of November more as 'Anonymous Day'.

Except Guy Fawkes wanted to kill a bunch of corrupt government assholes aand Osama flew a couple planes into two buildings filled with innocent civilians going about their lives.

there's a big difference

Good evening, London. Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of every day routine- the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration, thereby those important events of the past usually associated with someone's death or the end of some awful bloody struggle, a celebration of a nice holiday, I thought we could mark this November the 5th, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat. There are of course those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now, orders are being shouted into telephones, and men with guns will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

To be fair Guy Fawkes was stopped, that's what the celebration is for...

The difference is that Osama killed innocents.
Politicians usually deserve it.

I see I have to put some **** straight.

1: Guy Fawkes didn't try to "install a theocracy". It already ******* were a (christian) theocracy just like all of Europe. Any self-confessed atheist at that time would have been tried with torture for witchery and burned at the stake, hanged if he were lucky.

2: The quarrel was between the catholic and protestant church and it's pretty much the same **** that went down in Ireland not too long ago. What's more, at the time there was WAR between the two factions and Fawkes saw it as a holy duty to reinstall Catholicism. No different from crusades or jihad (which were/is also far into the land of full retard)

3: Just like in Ireland things were hidden beneath the religion. In this case it was Scotland vs England.

4: The effigy used to be the pope, not Fawkes. Food for thought, eh?

5: I don't care about that stuff but Fawkes really were a patriot, freedom fighter and revolutionary (which is of course just another word for terrorist these days)

6: V for vendetta is a ******* awesome movie. In case nobody noticed it is not about the real Guy Fawkes.

7: Start an Osama Bin Laden jenga day if you like, noone cares.

a freedom fighter that wins is a national hero for all time, one that looses is a terrorist.

whoever wins will make you believe that their opponent was the villain.

It's celebrated in honor of discovering the Gunpowder plot. Because if it wasn't found out and stopped, bad things would've happened.

Say whatever you  want, but Fawkes is a monster with the Gatling Laser.

If you think it's just about Guy Fawkes getting caught, you're missing half the point. Yes, Parliament caught him before he could enact his plan. And in a way, they set off the fireworks as a reminder not to screw with them. But it's also a reminder to themselves. A reminder to never forget, and to never get complacent. It's a message to the people AND the government
