Kerala’s craze for fireworks at temple festivals is well-known. Beginning with the Malayali New Year — Vishu, fireworks are the norm for every festival, religious or otherwise. Despite Diwali not being celebrated in the southern state with too much gusto, crackers find their place in all other festivals. Church functions too see displays of fireworks.
