Then I took my aunts electric car and arrived at my destination. A: its not easy for me to see a firework!
The fireworks began to set off. Ah! How beautiful it is! There are colorful spheres rushing up into the sky. With a loud bang, fireworks explode in the air, some like a round smile, some like a red star, and some like Numbers. I was dazzled. The best of all was the red lanterns that waddled in the sky for a long time. What a happy day!

One emperor heard that Buddhist monks would watch sarira, or remains from the cremation of Buddhas body, and light lanterns to worship Buddha on the 15th day of the 1st lunar month, so he ordered to light lanterns in the imperial palace and temples to show respect to Buddha on this day. Later, the Buddhist rite developed into a grand festival among common people and its influence expanded from the Central Plains to the whole of China.
