But to answer the question: we've planned nothing on purpose. We'll light some fireworks before our girl goes to bed and we'll probably go to bed early as well, though we might get up for the fireworks at midnight. Or we may not.

We're going to stay at home, hoping our son will sleep through at least the build-up in the earlier evening. Around midnight, we might either watch the fireworks with him from our bedroom windows, or have to calm him down, or he'll sleep through it all.

We had plans, they're done and dusted now. Went to a friends and played board games all evening and just before midnight went outside to watch the fireworks. The apartment where my friend is currently living is across the road from one of the four major sites where they lit fireworks across the city so we had a really good view. Almost too close, I near had a heart attack when it started!
I still can't get over how gorgeous fireworks are these days. They really progressed and improved, especially with colours, over the six years I was in NL when I didn't see any for years.
The sight filled the northern sky; the imensity of it was scarcely conceivable. As if from Heaven itself, great curtains of delicate light hung and trembled. Pale green and rose-pink, and as transparent as the most fragile fabric, and at the bottom edge a profound fiery crimson like the fires of Hell, they swung and shimmered loosely with more grace than the most skillful dancer. ~ Northern Lights
