Madeira New Year Tradition

During the seventeenth century it was customary to light bonfires at the New Year’s Eve night to light and shine to Madeiran homes. In the following century, the resident British community began to launch rockets to mark the beginning of the new year.

This novelty would turn to be adopted by the wealthiest families on the island, emerging dispute over the family who had the best firework. Gradually, this way of celebrating the new year began to become popular and the first few seconds of each year began to be a real spectacle that did shine in Madeira sky in the most varied colors and shapes of fire firework that would make It famous and attract more people at this time of the year.

Currently, the firework is not so spontaneous, their preparation is thought to detail, and gained such spectacle that in 2006 entered the book of guinness world records as “the greatest fire firework show in the world”.
