Although the festival originally started in the 19th century as a means to protect people from danger and disease, it seems now that the sense of danger is what the festival is all about. Some even say that getting hit by firecrackers is a good sign from the heavens.

Is it the same to reword the bolded part as "a good omen/symbol from the sky?" Thanks.
