In This Story: Bonfire Night
Bonfire Night, also known as Guy Fawkes Night, is observed on 5 November in the United Kingdom. The event commemorates the failed Gunpowder Plot of 1605.
A group of English Catholics had planned to assassinate the Protestant King James and replace him with a Catholic monarch. The group were betrayed and Guy Fawkes discovered beneath Westminster Palace with a cache of gunpowder.
Celebrating the fact that King James I had survived the attempt on his life, people lit bonfires around London; and months later, the introduction of the Observance of 5th November Act enforced an annual public day of thanksgiving for the plot’s failure.
The present-day Guy Fawkes Night is usually celebrated at large organised events, centred on a bonfire and extravagant firework displays.
In This Story: TikTok
TikTok, known in China as Douyin, is a Chinese video-sharing social networking service owned by ByteDance, a Beijing-based Internet technology company founded in 2012 by Zhang Yiming. It is used to create short music, lip-sync, dance, comedy and talent videos of 3 to 15 seconds, and short looping videos of 3 to 60 seconds.
ByteDance first launched Douyin for the Chinese market in September 2016. Later, TikTok was launched in 2017 for iOS and Android in most markets outside of mainland China; however, it only became available worldwide, including the United States, after merging with another Chinese social media service Musical.ly on 2 August 2018.
