New Years Eve!!!

    
In Germany New Years Eve is a very big deal.  Like a huge deal. People Drink and Party but most of all they shoot fireworks like total nut bags. Some crazy people spend hundreds of Euros on rockets and fireworks. They start before it gets dark out just to see if they work right….that’s not annoying. But as soon as it hits midnight you would think someone let out all the crazies…..and my family is right smack in the middle of all that madness. We go out about 15min early and get the rockets set up and get our fireworks unwrapped so we don’t slow down at twelve when we are winging firecrackers all over the place.  silvester4

You wanna see crazy? Take a gander at this video. This was our street.
Before all the flinging Fireworks we sat down to another German Tradition….no not sauerkraut and Pork.

It was a fun night but I was so wore out from getting up so early that I was ready to go to bed at 9:00pm. 
Off to a new year with new resolutions and new Drama.
Toodles,
