Happy New Year

The build up for new year celebration has already started. I’m sitting in my apartment (hurrah for days off work) and I can hear fireworks already being let off around the city.

Fireworks are a big part of new year celebrations in Amsterdam, and from midnight there will be huge fireworks let off all across the city, lighting up the sky, and coating the city in an acrid smoke.

As a new year bonus apparently 70% of bars will introduce smoking bans – 6 months ahead of the legal requirement to do so. That’s a huge bonus for non-smokers, apparently the logic is that New Year is when a lot of people will make resolutions to give up smoking. Here’s hoping.
