|pictures via google, I forgot my camera at a friends place. So annoying! -.-|
This year was special. First my family went over to my auntie's place for dinner. We had turkey. So delicious! This year my family celebrated NYE at the Brandenburger Tor. It was the most amazing thing ever. Everyone was celebrating together and the people were actually all happy and friendly. There was this "Fanmeile"-vibe like during the World Cup in June going on. I think public viewing and public anything, does society good, when people with the same interest come together and just enjoy themselves.
There were a lot of tourists there and it was actually pretty crowded. I think reportedly it was said that around one million people came to this event. We didn't actually exactly make it to the Brandenburger Tor, because we arrived only 10 minutes to Midnight. But we're were actually pretty close. Paul Potts was supposed to be there, but being where we were standing, we didn't see or hear him. But that didn't matter, back there people were entertaining themselves singing, jumping around, screaming, drinking and of course setting firecrackers on fire. 3 guys even climbed the lantern and street post sign - shirtless. :D
A group of tourist started the countdown too early. Haha. We still had a minute to go. On the real midnight, the sky was filled with beautiful fire works. It looked simply amazing. Unfortunately I forgot my camera at my friend's place. Those who follow my twitter know I went to my friend for a so called "pre new years party".(Pictures to come soon! As soon as I get my cam back :) )
It's the first time I have been out on NYE, because when it comes to firecrackers, I'm a chicken. I much prefer to watch them from my window, than stand next to them. I love fireworks, I think they are amazing. And I've been to the Pyronale before (you must see this once in your lifetime). I don't know, they just freak me out.
And yes I nearly wet my pants the whole night. Was a great experience tough :)
Back home my bro and me made ourselfs a cozy night with hot cocoa and Glee. (I only just started. And I must say I find it pretty amusing^^)
Again, I wish you all a happy new year and all the best. May you all be healthy, happy and filled with joy and continue to read my little blog :)
