Fireworks clip from the Philippines
That's my father-in-law, Alex Sablay, officiating the household's fireworks front.
LOUD! The noise started way early. At around 8 p.m. those who had the bigger stash started with their celebration. By around five minutes to midnight it was already in full swing and it kept going for long time. Didn't handle any fireworks myself (read: chicken) but had a great time welcoming the new year, B.F. Homes P'gue style from the Philippines.
