I want to wish all of my friends and readers a Happy New Year with wishes of well being in the year to come.
At the same time I would like to urge you to wait with shooting off the firewords and fire crackers until midnight on new years eve. Remember the childen and adults, and animals for example cats, dogs, horses, other animals and wild animals, who get frightened from fireworks. If we all wait with the fireworks until midnight on new years eve they are afraid a shorter time, one hour instead of several days. Many of those have a nightmare all new years and must use calming drugs. They also have the right to a nice New Years Eve, don’t you think?
Onky use fireworks at 24 o.clock and if you have any fireworks left after the stroke of 12, save them for next year.
And also remember that children should not use fireworks. Even if it is pretty, fireworks are explosives. In Norway you must be 16 years to buy or use fireworks class 1B for example sparklers (SE: tomtebloss / NO: stjerneskudd), and 18 years to buy and use fireworks. Always use protective goggles.
New years 2011 in Norway 63 people was hurt by fireworks, and 23 of those were children.
Don’t be one of them who destroys the New Years for those frightened, and don’t be one of those who get hurt.
Please, also cut down on the perfume use. Think of those allergic that may attend your party, or visit the same party as you.
Happy New Year! and Pass it on.
