Let’s talk about one of the things that really makes that new year kick off with a bang, expensive firework shows. Fireworks originated in China and were first used around 2000 years ago. Legend says that they were discovered or invented when a Chinese cook happened to mix charcoal, sulfur and saltpeter when working in a field kitchen. The mixture burned and exploded when compressed in a bamboo tube. Other sources say that fireworks originated in India but back in 2003, the national Indian newspaper called The Hindu, in fact, credited the Chinese with the discovery.

In China and eastern parts of the world, firecrackers are used at most events such as births, death and birthdays. Chinese New Year is a particularly popular event that is celebrated with firecrackers to usher in the new year free of evil spirits. Overtime expensive firework shows gained popularity all over the globe and people are always amazed by them. Let’s just get the show on the road shall we.
