Celebrating Chinese New Year's Day

More Fireworks on New Year's Day

The first day of Chinese new year is spent much like new year's eve. Large family gathering and dining together, and followed with a late night round of fireworks.

Another Night of Fun With Fireworks

Our Chinese new year's day was spent much like the previous day, so I won't bore you with the details of it all again. On the night of Chinese new year's day (Feb 18th) my cousins and I headed out with the remaining fireworks and headed out to the river side.

Linining up a bunch of fountain type of fireworks, and about to light them all at once.

The fireworks were lit, and we got a photo standing right behind them. It's difficult to see us through the thick layer of smoke.

Lighting more fireworks.

I'm holding and swinging sparkler type firecrackers that sparkle and make tiny explosions. They sure create alot of smoke.

More of the exploding sparklers.

When it came time to fire off the largest fireworks I bought, we found a large open area, with plenty of flat surface. It was a large, 30 explosion firework that cost $160yuan. About three quarter way through the fire works, we were standing (about 30feet away) with our backs facing the fireworks taking photos. Before we knew it, the fireworks flipped over and began shooting the remaing 2 shots side ways - fortunately away from us.

At first, I thought it flipped over on its side due to the explosions, but then I saw two people, an old guy, and lady fighting over the still lit, and smoking fireworks casing (made of heavy card board).

It was unbelievable... It would seem that those two people were fighting over who gets the card board casing even while the fireworks was still going off, and as the argument got heated, one of them try to pick up the fireworks even as it was still going, and knocked it on its side. (They can sell the cardboard for money).

Luckily the fireworks fell facing where there were no one around, and after a lot of cussing we told them to get lost.
