As you get ready to ring in the New Year with your bag full of fireworks, keep in mind that other countries have a leg up on the firecracker game.

In Taiwan, a temple used to celebrate by laying out a carpet of firecrackers down a street. They even called it "The Red Carpet Of Firecrackers." Unfortunately (or not), the city has since banned this tradition...but thank the internet for YouTube, because now you can experience it, too.

One word of warning...turn down your volume BEFORE you hit play. As you can imagine, thousands of firecrackers going off is loud.
