Local Shotgun-toting residents gather their shotguns and handguns to shoot black-power blanks on Jackson, California's Main Street during the annual celebration of Christmas on January 7...Tradition has it that many years ago in the old country, that gunfire announced to the next village the birth of Jesus Christ before telephones and automobiles. This unique tradition continues today in the Mother Lode Gold County..
