Fireworks - The Great Chinese Invention

Quote:
Fireworks are one of the most glorious inventions the Chinese have ever made. Used for celebrations of all kinds, lighting the sky with the most amazing of colors. Used to ward away evil spirits. Used to symbolize the enormity of greatness.


I have been writing about fireworks, and also put a video on Damn English too. http://www.damn-english.com/%e6%98%a5%e8%8a%82%e8%ae%b0%e4%ba%8b/fireworks/

Weeeee! That looks awfully close to surrounding buildings. Not a lot of government regulations on public explosions near flammable residential structures, eh?

Happy Year of the Ox!
