about any occasion is suitable for celebrating with fireworks. Fireworks

November 5th marks the anniversary of the Gunpowder Plot, a
conspiracy to blow up the English Parliament and King James I in
1605, the day set for the king to open Parliament. The anniversary was
named after Guy Fawkes, the most famous of the conspirators.
It was intended to be the beginning of a great uprising of English
Catholics, who were distressed by the increased severity of penal laws
against the practice of the Catholic religion. While the plot was the
work of a small number of men, it provoked hostility against all English
Catholics and led to an increase in the harshness of laws against
them. Guy Fawkes Day, November 5, is still celebrated in England with
fireworks and bonfires, on which effigies of the him are set ablaze.
|DIWALI - DEVALI - OR DEEPAVALI:
This is perhaps the most well-known of the Indian festivals: it is
celebrated throughout India, as well as in Indian communities
throughout the diaspora. It usually takes place eighteen days after
Dusshera. It is colloquially known as the "festival of lights", for the
common practice is to light small oil lamps (called diyas) and place
them around the home, in courtyards, verandahs, and gardens, as well
as on roof-tops and outer walls. In urban areas, especially, candles are
substituted for diyas; and among the nouveau riche, neon lights are
made to substitute for candles. The celebration of the festival is
invariably accompanied by the exchange of sweets and the explosion
of fireworks. As with other Indian festivals, Diwali signifies many
different things to people across the country. In north India, Diwali
celebrates Rama's homecoming, that is his return to Ayodhya after the
defeat of Ravana and his coronation as king; in Gujarat, the festival
honors Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth; and in Bengal, it is associated

|CHINESE NEW YEAR:
Chinese New Year is the biggest holiday celebrated among Chinese
people. It is often referred to as the spring festival because it signals
the beginning of spring. It is a time when families and friends get
together to say goodbye to the old and welcome the new.
One idea is that the holiday originated when a beast named Nina
(which means year in Chinese) came out the night before the new
year and started to prey on the people in the villages. The people were
very frightened by this monster, a brave man went up to the beast and
said to him that instead of eating the people of the villages, he should
eat the other beasts that frightened these people. Nian followed the
man's request and all of the beasts were chased away. The people of
the village were very grateful to the man for giving them a peaceful
life. Before the man left for good, he told the people to put up red
paper decorations on their windows and doors at the beginning of
each new year because the color red scared the beast. They also set
off firecrackers to scare away the horrible beast.
A interesting thing about Chinese New Year is that very few people
know when this holiday is celebrated without looking at a traditional
Chinese calendar as it never falls on the same day. The ancient
Chinese used a lunar calendar. with a lunar calendar, the new year
begins the first night of the new moon after the sun enters Aquarius.
This date is anywhere between January 20 and February 19. Chinese
years are grouped in sets of 12 with each year being represented by
an animal (zodiac sign). It is said that a person displays the
characteristics of the animal of the year in which they were born.
Chinese New Year celebrations would not be complete without
fireworks! There are many beliefs about why fireworks are used. One
is that the noise wakes up the dragon who will fly across the sky to
bring the spring rain for the crops. Another belief is that the noise of
the fireworks is supposed to scare away all evil spirits and
misfortunes, preventing them from coming into the new year.
Firecrackers are thrown at the feet of the dragons in the parade to
keep them awake for the celebration. The dragons are believed to
sleep the rest of the year.
It is important to remember that Chinese New Year is not only
celebrated in China. Anywhere there are Chinese people, there is a
Chinese New Year celebration. The specific activities of the
celebration often vary depending on the region, but the basic principles
are the same.
