Today I came across the following article. To some it is funny, to others serious. Decide for yourself.

Thanks for the post. Some I knew, others were new to me. I found it seriously funny in parts.

If they all sit down at midnight to eat, who the hell lets off the million fireworks that start at midnight? I would be interested in knowing when the fireworks tradition started as well. Understand New Years Eve, but over the last couple of years, I think Christmas night seems to be edging in front for the sheer volume going off.

Omg seriously? I lived there five years and all of those things were gathered within the first year, plus some.

Much ado about nothing. I mean, they're not particularly interesting either. "Oh! It's different than my country!" That wears off in the first year too. Come on, guys.
