Sylvester is an awesome holiday in Germany. I'm glad we got to celebrate it one last time. Sylvester is New Year's Eve Night & it's like one giant war outside! When the clock strikes midnight, the Germans go nuts!! Nothing is off limits. You can shoot off the biggest & best fireworks you've ever seen in the middle of the streets. The entire sky is on fire & it sounds like a bunch of guns going off. It's amazing! It lasts well over an hour too. I'm surprised more people don't get hurt or burned, but everything always ends up okay.
Trek got a whole bunch of rockets to launch this year. The girls had a blast watching him light them.
The next day, the streets are filled with sticks, fuses, & plastic pieces from the lit off fireworks. It's insane! But SO MUCH FUN!!
Happy New Year!!! 2010 is going to be the best EVER!
