They have some different traditions down here. They wait up on Christmas Eve until midnight and then let off fireworks. Of course a lot of the people with fireworks can’t wait. Like people who buy their Halloween candy early and eat half of it before the big day. So in the days leading up to Christmas the evenings have random fireworks going off here and there. But on Christmas Eve you find out what people have been stockpiling. The occasional explosions become more frequent until midnight when they are going off all over the place. Some big, some small, but it seems like everyone had some. Near and far, the clouds glowing on the horizon from the ones you can’t see.
