    One of the best things about living here in Anacortes, WA is that we're 3,000 miles away from New York! From the scenes shown on TV, there were about 15x the population here (about 20,000) just in Times Square. Not for me, even for a visit.

    Did anyone else find it strange that both China and Hong Kong had New Year fireworks when their New Year is in February?

    100 000 people in London for the fireworks, at a cost of £10 per person, £1000 000 (1 million pounds = 1.27 million dollars) - that is some expensive fireworks!

    Sadly reduced by the £2 million cost of policing ?
    So they showed pictures on the TV of last years firework event and those in London
    this year were each given a sparkler :(

    The only way that I see midnight anymore is if my first whizz of the night happens at that time of night. It worked out perfect this year BTW.

    Likewise, Steve! And there are typically 2 more for me before morning! My doc hasn't figured it out, yet.

    In Hong Kong we are a multi cultural society that celebrates Western and Chinese New Year, Christmas, Easter, mid Autumn Festival, Buddha’s Birthday, Dragon boat Festival and China National Day celebrating the founding of The People’s Republic of China. We have public holidays for all of these occasions and there is seldom any problems despite large numbers of people and many families gathering in public areas to enjoy the show.

    Eljahara, If you’re getting off stop in HK. No guns, knives - apart from the ones for making fish-lips on toast - Trump, Brexit, late trains, and the government can pay for the fireworks for both New Years without bankrupting our health service. As a bonus you can have a spin on my Norton.
