Blame it on the season, but I have been thinking lately of magickal use for fireworks and new year's rockets. I mean, better putting them to good use than be waken in the middle of the night by drunken revellers, shooting rockets in every directions...
An idea is that one could bind a note with a humble request or prayer, straight up to the Starry Heavens. Or you could send up a symbol for some unwanted aspects of one's personallity, to see it disapear in a glorious blaze of heavenly fire. I imagine similar applications also fore those more serene flying thai lantern-balloons.
I wish you all a Joyful Termination of the Old Year, and a Happy Beginning of the New...!
Some music for your celebration:
