    Additional Video of Aerial Fireworks in Muntinlupa City, Philippines

    This is an additional video of the just-concluded fireworks’ display in the skies of Tunasan, Muntinlupa City. The said fireworks’ display took place around 11:10 pm (Manila Time). Crowds cheered and clapped their hands upon seeing the spectacular fireworks there. Filipinos love to celebrate the New Year with a big bang, so to speak. The lighting up of firecrakers and fireworks during New Year’s Eve here in the Philippines is a solid tradition. Such tradition is now a part and parcel of Philippine culture. The said tradition was introduced in the Philippines by Chinese traders a long time ago. The lighting up of firecrackers and fireworks during New Year’s Eve is supposed to bring in good luck and drive away negativity and bad spirits. Hence, many Filipinos light up firecrackers and fireworks during New Year’s Eve.
