CNY-Rat-5

Lighting firecrackers arises from a popular myth that a dreadful monster used to terrorize ancient Chinese villages, until one man discovered that the monster was terrified of loud noises. Singapore has however, banned firecrackers or at least those let off by individuals - uncontrolled explosions going off in a nation that is often jostling for space, could be asking for trouble. There are professional pyrotechnic companies that put up a good show. Furthermore, red is believed to be an auspicious colour, so virtually everything is in shades of red.... or yellow/gold.

A positive riot of colour Ayush ! I would be quite happy if fireworks were banned except for professional exhibitions.
Ayush Basu: I think that is a sensible thing indeed, Frank.
Tout est dans les mêmes tons.
Ayush Basu: Similar colours and similar theme, Martine.

Banning firecrackers is a very good idea..
Ayush Basu: I think that is a sensible thing indeed, Chris.
I absolutely love this colourful photo. All the reds in pattern and more are delightful.

I am in agreement with banning fireworks except for special events. Having pets outdoors when a neighbour uses such things is disaster as the pets run away.
Ayush Basu: The colours were strong and it was also interesting to see this gent engaging in some last minute shopping. I think that (banning) is a sensible thing indeed, Mary.
I wish we had the same rule here about fireworks!

What a riot of red and gold this is
Ayush Basu: They are related to auspicious and prosperity themes, Bill.
I like all the brilliant shades of red but like the others here I would love for the general sale of fireworks to be totlally banned, people who buy them sadly have little, if any, respect for others when they decide to let them off.
Ayush Basu: I agree, it is sensible to have them banned, Brian.
this shop has a lot of things to sell Ayush... good framing using the shopper as scale....petersmile
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the observant comment, Peter.
interesting, about the fireworks! and this picture is total sensory overload haha, can't imagine being there in person! smile
Ayush Basu: It does look a wall of bright red and scarlet, Elaine.
The little girl is almost lost in the color.
