This year end was a hard time for the fireworks loving people. In Holland setting off fireworks at year end is imperative for everyone. However as an aftermath of the huge fireworks depot explosion in Enschede laws have become so strict that hardly any body can sell fireworks anymore. Which is a shame. Setting off fireworks is one off the last legal acts of "machismo" left to a Dutch man. By doing so he still can get the respect and admiration of his little son. Fortunately I have been able to get some off the stuff. So, again my son will be in awe for another year.
As an alternative the use of carbide in old milk containers has really taken off. This farmer tradition is getting hip. This year on 31 December the sound of heavy guns has been sounding all day long in my village because of it. Here some examples of the shooting from the village of Bakkeveen
