Fireworks and firecrackers are available with no trouble, especially before New Year's Eve. Already before Christmas the "charms" of the end of the year begin - sudden shots giving you a heart attack. They raise to their full power on New Year's Eve and New Year. And just like always, it was ment to be perfect but it ended up the same.
Admission rooms in hospitals are full with those who suffered in accidents with fireworks and pet owners experience moments of horror. Adn for what? A second of boom and a pretty flare?
In many locations fireworks shows are organized. They are prepared by professionals, beautiful and safe. They last just long enough to enjoy wonderful colours and shapes. And it's enough. There's no need for "private shows" the results of which may be tragic, because the mix of fireworks and alcohol is never a good idea.
It is not a great way to start the new year when you suffer from burnt body or lost limb. It's not cool to look, with tears in your eyes, for a pet which ran away scared by the noise. The New Year shouldn't start like this.
And it's only your choice how it will start.
