Did you know that fireworks started as weapons? You likely did. But maybe you didn’t know that they are also weapons against several monsters!
Most notable of course is the Chinese Nian , the half-lion, half-bull, who like many of us does not enjoy loud noises or sudden lights. He’s not alone, of course. When Summer and Lia watch fireworks, they like to set up a blanket, pop something cold, eat fried chicken and imagine what sorts of monsters are being banished or shooed.
May you enjoy a safe and prosperous holiday, no matter how you celebrate!
