New Year is coming a few days from now. And why not celebrate the end of the year with a bang! Literally.
Watching the annual fireworks display is a spectacle you can enjoy with your loved ones. According to Neuroscientist Daniel Glaser, fireworks are a favorite by humans because they scare us. The bright flashes of light signal the amygdala of danger. In return, we experience dopamine spikes in our bodies — making us feel pleasure while watching.
Why Not Watch Over TV?
Experiencing the event in real-life is definitely different from your television screens. You can enjoy the energy of the crowd. And the anticipation with your family when the clock strikes 12.
And besides, even if you have a 4K TV, the colors will not be the same when you are there in person. If you don’t believe me, check out this article for the science behind it.
