A special festival in Taitung, Taiwan. The wealth god HanDan comes down to bless those in the coming year who keep him warm. How does a god stay warm? By throwing as many firecrackers at him as possible, of course. Lucky Temple members go up and are possesed by Handan for a few minutes, as they are spun around on a ceremonial chair while being ‘bombed’ by the firecrackers.
