Photos: Fireworks Usher In The New Year Round The World

Fireworks are a class of explosive pyrotechnic devices used for aesthetic and culture, and religious purposes. A fireworks event (also called a fireworks show or pyrotechnics) is a display of the effects produced by firework devices.

Fireworks take many forms to produce the four primary effects: noise, light, smoke and floating materials (confetti for example). They may be designed to burn with flames and sparks of many colours, typically red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and silver. Displays are common throughout the world and are the focal point of many cultural and religious celebrations.

And so to usher in the new year, the effect of fireworks was felt world over.
