Bright

photo hunt


One of the best things in celebrating new year's day is thru fireworks and doing all sorts of noises. A Chinese custom said that doing such drives away the bad spirit and dark memories of the previous year. Here in our house, we don't really do fireworks and firecrackers because we've had bad experiences about it (we've bought defective products on some occassions), so we just welcome the new year by shouting, or putting some coins in a tin can and shake it. Sometimes, we buy some horns and blow it, or just make use of anything to create noises. =)

This picture was shot using my cell phone when we welcome 2008. That's our neighbor Daniel, who, instead of pinning the roman candle firework on a tree or something sturdy, he decided to nail it on a long piece of wood and paraded on the street as the roman candle spinned. His mom went berserk (he might get injured), but oh well, kids will be kids.
