No kidding!

Here when you say that people celebrate New Year with fireworks, it's really an understatement!
First you are overwhelmed with flyers, then shops appear everywhere in the city (even in ice-cream shop). Then the test runs starts. By law, you can start from December 1st, just to warm up for the big day. The week before New Year, it's every night.
So after such a long wait, the big night finally comes and ammunition are out quickly after dark (around 4). There is a net increase around 8, and of course a climax just after midnight (for 30 to 45mn). Then it lasts a little more quietly until 2 or 3 in the morning.

The advantage of living on the third floor overlooking a residential area: you can see fireworks at a 180 degrees angle!
I don't know if you can well see it in the pictures, but there is really a firework in every garden!
