As usual I'll fire recently expired or excessive distress flares at midnight to the sky (which is legally as well with a dedicated weapon) when all neighbours standing at the streets with their drinking glasses or tumblers for new year's wishes. Sometimes I'm surrounded by some kinda pyromaniacs who spended this year the crazy insane amount of 138.000.000 € (= 232.523.790 NZ$) for fireworks and firecrackers solitary in our country. The more the merrier.
How do you chase the old year away to welcome the new one? More silently and contemplative? Or will you have some bangs in your pockets as well? What are your traditions and habits at midnight?
