Do you think festivals affect the eco-system?

We celebrate many different festivals. We have different ways of celebrating our festivals. However, knowingly or unknowingly, we tend to do rituals which make a negative effect on the environment. We burn fire crackers which creates sound and air pollution. We play loud music or band which causes sound pollution again. and the list goes on... Do you think that the festivals we celebrate actually have a negative inpact on the Eco-System? Or do you think its completely allright to hurt the environment in the name of festivals?

In China, there are many, many ethnic minorities, and their festivals are very frand, very lively, very moving. But they did not burn fireworks, there is no air pollution. Many holiday rituals are handed down, and for some time can not be changed, which requires us to our joint efforts, to protect our planet's eco-bad territory.

we practice these festivals due to to main reasons, for tradition and to attract tourists to boost our economy, and we all know that economic growth has its corresponding effect on our environment, and its our choice what to prioritize, our economy or our environment.
