Fireworks

Firework is legal in China. In fact, gunpowder is China’s ancient invention. Fireworks are used as part of the celebration in occasions such as Chinese New Year or opening of a new store business. One of our trips to China was to visit relatives in rural area. My husband and my siblings decided to play fireworks. They spent US$10 and got a whole shopping bag of all kinds of fireworks. The more expensive one was the rocket design with 13 tubes of gunpowder strapped in a hexagon shape.

Upon ignition, the rocket was catapulted straight into the sky so high that we almost couldn’t hear the explosion. My husband was impressed by the powerful display. He was thrilled and played until the last piece of fireworks was spent, because fireworks is illegal in our city in U.S.
