Fireworks, firecrackers, and new year

As usual, in Hamburg, in new year eve, some people around my home will celebrate it with fireworks and firecrackers. Sure, you can imagine how the sound of firecrackers, so noisy!

The situation is like Lebaran fest in Indonesia long long time ago when firecrackers are still allowed by the police. I still remember, when I was in junior high school, I made hundreds of firecrackers by my self. I did it in the month of Ramadan after back from school. No special tools needed, only paper, pencil or spidol and ruler from wood to make the tube of firecrackers, while the epoxy and fuse could be bought in the market. Compare to the firecracker sold in Germany, the sound of my firecrackers is louder!

In Germany, the fireworks and firecrackers are sold freely in supermarket on December (usually one or two weeks before new year). We can find a lot of fireworks and firecrackers sale everywhere.

So, happy new year for all of you! Have you make a plan to celebrate the new year eve? Usually, I celebrate it by sleeping for a year! zzz...zzz...zzz...

Welcome 2006! I am here waiting for you!

yup tidur aza kang , buat setahun :D

Buon Anno!

di sini dilarang utk membuat firecrackers by yourself... terlalu berbahaya... dan juga selalu diingatkan utk sebaiknya jangan membeli firecrackers yg murah, buatan Eropa Timur, karena biasanya tidak memenuhi safety standard Jerman.

Oh ya... di Jerman juga setiap tahun ada slogan dari berbagai aid organizations: "Brot statt Böller" ("roti daripada firecrackers", "Böller" itu kata slang utk firecrackers), kami diminta utk menyumbangkan uang yg biasanya dipakai buat membeli firecrackers untuk salah satu aid organization, jadi uang itu tidak di"buang" spt kalau digunakan utk firecrackers, tetapi utk membantu orang miskin...

Selamat Tahun Baru juga buat biggos Veddel... :)

@kusaeni: selamat "tidur panjang", jangan lupa, tahun ini ditambah 1 detik ya tahun barunya... :)

@ricorea: Buon Anno juga!

@ni londo: hehehe... untung dulu saya nggak kenapa-kenapa pas bikin petasan sendiri... eh tapi petasan pertama buatan saya memakan korban tangan teman saya yang sok gaya mau ngelempar petasan yang nyala, tapi terlambat sekian detik ngelemparnya...

Selamat tahun baru juga buat biggos Hoeheluftchausee... :)
