Scare ghosts with LIGHT • #JanuaryLights
My first entry in the month-long challenge #JanuaryLights hosted by the ever so gracious Becky!
Lest we forget, the ancient ritual of lighting fireworks is a Chinese one. Or so I’ve been told over and over by the Chinese side of my family, ever since I was a kid. Hence the noise of firecrackers, but moreover the displays of flashing light. Superstitious as I am, I used to believe in this ritual.
But somehow this year I didn’t light a single piece of fireworks. Lets see if I’ll survive this year. If this first month doesn’t pan out, I’ve always got a second chance roughly a month from now during Chinese New Year!
And if the people of The Hague felt this was coming, they lit more than enough this year to last anyone a lifetime. My ears are still ringing from the (highly illegal) ‘mortar bombs’ and just as illegal ‘butterfly bombs.’
Meanwhile feast your eyes on this attempt to scare ghosts with light:
