In the Netherlands it's very common for residents to buy fireworks. I have a 270 degree display over the city and there is basically fireworks everywhere for like 50 minutes.

Apparently large-scale private fireworks is not common in every country.

Greetings from the past, those of you in 2013. :-)

As an (unplanned) parting tribute to 2012, I have Melancholia on TV....

EDIT: license-plate nerds may be interested to note that this film (actually filmed in Sweden) has Pennsylvania plates on the cars. On the front of the cars too.

Many Romance languages have common salutations for birthdays and new year (or other milestones where the meaning is "have many others like this").

Some Italians say "cento di questi giorni" (one hundred of those days) when is someone's birthday.
