Chinese New Year falls on Saturday 25th January this year, is anyone planning anything? Seasonal retailers can sell fireworks in the three days preceding this but usually don’t bother. It is also one of the dates where fireworks can legally be set of until 1am but I doubt my neighbours would appreciate it! I will have the family over for our usual Chinese takeaway and a few quieter fireworks. I may do something a little bigger this year as it is a Saturday night.
