I watched the fireworks from Australia. Always a highlight of my Christmas Eve morning. They didn't get enough air time in my opinion.
Tonight, if the winds aren't too strong, they'll have fireworks here. They have them early so families can come out together and enjoy special events, finishing off with fireworks at 10:00 p.m. that way the children don't have to stay up too late passed their bedtime and if the adults wanted to make plans to slip out and arrange for someone to look after their children they could do so without feeling like they didn't celebrate together.
Thanks for leading us through the Countdown in 2008, Crown! I'm sure we'll reach 5,500 posts by the end of next year's count.
I'll try and swing by the Chat Room tonight around midnight.
Happy New Year's Eve!
