Waiting for it all to begin. By the time it was over we couldn't see any more city lights because of the smoke from all the fireworks.
Setting up the cameras.
Watching for the next big one.
A video right at midnight.

Makes American 4th of July fireworks seem a little tame, hey? :-)
The superstitious belief of many is that the more noise you make on New Year's Eve, the more prosperous the coming year will be. The noise supposedly scares all the bad spirits away. Another superstitious practice is to have/give round fruit. Many believe that the round fruit will also ensure a prosperous year, since both the fruit and money (coins) are round.
We are thankful that as Christians we are delivered from these superstitious fears and beliefs and are confident that all our ways are in our heavenly Father's merciful hands.
