By Jim Boyce | The Chinese New Year holidays are underway and plenty of wine and baijiu bottles have already been emptied! All the best to my friends here in China and those around the world for the upcoming year. And if you are a fan of fireworks, check out the videos below. The first one shows fireworks exploding from dozens of sources around my apartment in central Beijing. It’s from 2007 and is most intense display I have witnessed.
The second video that shows how close some of those fireworks were to my building. One exploding projectile sent a few cinders into my apartment!
