New Year Celebration
Friday, January 05, 2007
This post maybe a little bit late...but it's better late than never. I just want to share how we spent our New Year's Eve...

For the past years, my husband used to buy firecrakers and we greet the New Year lighting them. We do this in front of our house so that our neighbors can join us in the celebration. At the same time we also watch different forms of fireworks coming from different places. Greeting the New Year with friends, relatives, neighbors, and even with strangers who just happen to pass by at the time was really filled with extreme happiness and enjoyment.

As the years past more and more people get killed from stray bullets during the New Year's Eve celebration. So that last year we just bought a few fireworks just so we can have something to lit to greet the New Year. As early as November 2006, some of our neighbors were already lighting firecrackers at around 5 pm up to around 9 pm. It annoyed us so much and the noise coming from all over is enough to convince us not to buy anymore. Considering also the prices nowadays, the noise it makes, the destruction it produce, and the danger that it gives.

We heard mass at 8pm. By the time we arrive home we started preparing for our New Year's Eve dinner. We settled for a small barbeque party in our backyard. At about 10:30pm dinner was ready. We had some pasta, garlic bread, barbeque of course, and pineapple punch as drinks. Me and my husband had red wine. After the dinner, it was pass 11pm and firecrackers sounded all over. We had our share of noise too by banging pails and cans and whatever that make noise. We went to the rooftop to watch lots and lots of fireworks. It was really a sight to watch firefly displays lighting the nightime sky. There were rings of sparkling fire of different colors - gold, purple, blue, and white. Again...Happy New Year!
