Festivals across the globe are celebrated in a variety of different ways. Some celebrate with cultural dances, some parades, some dances, people getting out on the roads dressed like clowns etc and fireworks is almost a part of every other festival that is celebrated in different parts of the world. I mean the festival seems incomplete without it.
This is Taiwan, a country at the Far Eastern side of the world, the people look and almost talks like Japanese and Chinese people. So these people are celebrating yet another festival that involves initial prayers and speaking to their lords. What is in stored next is that they have set up a bed of fire crackers. Yes these red little things that you see laid on the floor are actually fire crackers. So they settle up and stray everyone away from the cracker bed. Next thing is that they say the final prayer and then light the damn thing. Bomb goes the first cracker and the chain then goes on till the very end. Fire has set through most of the crackers and the smoke cloud has become gigantic. What a cool way to celebrate and party, indeed.
