The chaotic effervescence of new year’s fireworks. No need to go out and face the crowds, trying to find the best position to watch. Simply stay home and watch the profusion of fireworks that explode into the night sky around midnight,IMG_2306 as families everywhere send their own firework explosions to welcome the New Year.IMG_2317IMG_2306IMG_2309

Most people stay home enjoying banquets with their families, waching the CCTV New Year’s gala, and eating jiaozi at midnight as the fireworks explode!
