Fireworks celebrating... I don't know...

Last night, I heard what sounded like fireworks, and it really was fireworks.

Fireworks

I don't know what the occasion was, but it was a very mellow pleasure to be curled up in bed reading, to hear the muffled sounds, to get up to investigate, and to observe the distant show.

She went down to her house by the water
To hide herself from his grasp
He went down to the water to find her
To consumate their love at last

Then the lightning flashing (flashing crashing)
Fireworks shooting up in her head (in her head)
The earth was shaking (shaking quaking)
Fireworks pouring down on her head (on her head)
Only sound she heard was (lovely word)
Fireworks like a charm (annointed)
Blazing red

She went down to escape from her prison
To free herself from her fears
All those years up to here with tradition
And opportunity so near

Then the lightning flashing (flashing crashing)
Fireworks shooting up in her head (in her head)
The earth was shaking (shaking quaking)
Fireworks pouring down on her head (on her head)
Only sound she heard was (lovely word)
Fireworks like a charm (annointed)
Blazing red

She went down on a snow white pillow
To cast herself in the looking glass
He knew the time had finally come now
To break the spell they shared at last

Then the lightning flashing (flashing crashing)
Fireworks shooting up in her head (in her head)
The earth was shaking (shaking quaking)
Fireworks pouring down on her head (on her head)
Only sound she heard was (lovely word)
Fireworks like a charm (annointed)
Blazing red

All things considered, that shot came out pretty good! What camera were you using, the Sony? Manual or automatic mode?

According to my son's Chinese tutor, today is a big Chinese holiday, akin to our Thanksgiving, called (approximately) Mid-Autumn Festival. Perhaps that's what they were for.

Although it would've worked better with Rosh Hoshan-ooo-aaah!
