Happy festival, ends with a bang,

"Happy festival"

It’s a yearly pilgrimage to my wife’s home town in Shenyang. In staying there, I go to parties, visiting relatives of my wife’s and of course, the letting off of fireworks. Huge ones. It’s almost like burning money at the price a single firework goes for.

Mortar boxes, used.

Even my father-in-law and I got into it, but at a smaller scale. He and I proceeded to let off firecrackers. Firstly individually, and then the whole lot. I always feel a certain amount of tension holding a firecracker before hastening to throw it away. This year the people who manage the apartment complex decided to put up glowing LED lights on one wall. It was in Chinese, and to me, looked like a mass of glow in the dark spaghetti that had been spattered up on a wall.

But by all means people come out and let off fireworks. Loads of fun. 🙂
