Different people have different views on firecrackers. Some people think that firecrackers should be banned because they endanger people's lives and social security. However, others hold that firecrackers houldn't be banned because they will drive evil spirits and bring luck.
As to me, I am in favor of the first idea. The reasons are as follows. First, addmittedly, letting off firecrackers will create an auspicious atmosphere, but it will not really bring luck to let off firecrackers. Besides, it is dangerous to let off firecrackers. It was reported that letting off firecrackers causes a lot of accidents, fire, injury, and even death every year.
However,it is our traditional custom to celebrate an important occasion by letting off firecrackers.How can we let off firecrackers whithoug causing accidents? The possible solution is that the substitute for the firecracker should be invented so that we can celebrate an important occasion whitout causing accidents.
