KEELUNG, TAIWAN (TTNews) – Although the Lunar New Year holiday has ended, Lantern Festival traditionally marks the end of Chinese New Year celebrations according to Chinese tradition. Thus, firecrackers and fireworks display, flying sky lanterns and all kinds of vigorous activities will be held in the course of Lantern Festival in hopes of bringing good fortune to the coming year.

2010 Keelung Bombing the Lion Festival is scheduled to launch at 6 pm on February 28 of 2010 at Keelung Cultural Centre Plaza. On the Lantern Festival night, almost every family and store will prepare their own firecrackers. The custom of Bombing the Dancing Lion is popular for the locals to throw firecrackers on the dancing lion. It is deeply believed that the more the firecrackers are set off, the more business opportunities would bring.

【全台鬧元宵】2010基隆炮獅 元宵夜火力全開

謝燕豪/基隆市

  雖然農曆假期已經結束,不過按照中國人的傳統習俗,真正的新年要到過了元宵初十五才算真的過完年,所以每年到了元宵,全台總是炮聲隆隆、火光四射,各種炮陣鬧元宵的活動把元宵的夜晚炸紅半邊天,也帶來一整年的福氣好采頭。今年基隆的炮獅當然也不會缺席,2010/2/28元宵當天晚上6點,基隆炮獅正式在基隆文化中心廣場點燃炮火迎元宵。

  傳統的炮獅是為了大年初五開工,獅團到店家門口舞獅要紅包,但因為來拜年的獅團太多,店家便想出拿鞭炮炸舞獅的炮陣,獅團得通過才能拿紅包,而且是鞭炮放越多、舞獅舞越久,店家生意也越好,所以便轉變成現在的基隆炮獅習俗,也讓全台灣的朋友見識到基隆炮獅的力與美。基隆炮獅已連續舉辦第六年,也成為全台元宵節的熱鬧活動之一,基隆的居民也習慣在元宵的晚上到港區前的文化中心廣場參與一年一度的炮獅盛會。

  炮獅最震撼人心的就是火光烈燄伴隨震耳巨響,火越旺代表運越足,如果要前往現場欣賞除了要準備相機外,更別忘了準備口罩、耳塞及護目鏡,完整的保護才能讓活動進行的順利和安全,也才能好好感受專屬於基隆港區才有的元宵魅力。(攝影/謝燕豪)
