Yin Yang China - Negative: During Spring Festival there are certain days where the fireworks and firecrackers go until late at night and then start early in the morning, making it virtually impossible to sleep. It's like being in the middle of a war zone. Positive: The atmosphere is very festive. Also, the government has recently been regulating where and when fireworks can be set off. This makes things much safer and also reduces the pollution some.
Many thanks to Fellow Daoist Noah Lee for bringing the seventh sponsored chapter of the week!
