The party was great we had a few people over and gathered around the fire. First New Year's Eve Party where I haven't needed an esky. You just leave your beer outside and it gets cold. We also got introduced to another US delicacy, Smores. These are crackers, called "Graham's" with melted marshmallows from the fire and chocolate inside.
Neil was the designated Firework tester and decided they needed to be lodged into the ground. We lit the first one and what a test. It burnt right down and shot up only about 4 feet into the air where 3 huge explosions of fire and sound scared the s*it out of us
The rest of the show was much more organised and the firework display was as good if not better than you'd get from a professional. All the kids enjoyed setting some off and the results were spectacular.
A few more drinks and a few more and it was 2012, we watched the historic ball drop from Times Square on TV and could identify with that as we had been right there a couple of days earlier.
