Fireworks Ban is still on
Chinese New Year used to be celebrated on a noisier scale, that is when fire crackers were allowed. Fireworks have been banned here for quite a number of years now. Throughout the entire fifteen days of the celebration, you would hear the loud noise everywhere. These days, during Chinese New Year, the only loud noise one hears is the drum beat of the Lion Dance troupes. Most people prefer it quiet though the celebration is no less merry and full of family activities.
