Turns out there actually is an Asian market in my town, but it's closed today, presumably because of new years
The fireworks store was open today though! I went and bought some sparklers and fuse. The guy just looked at me, smiled and said "I know what you're doing!" haha, I have no idea what he's talking about :P
Pah, buying fireworks. Waste of money if you ask me.
In the Netherlands it's common tradition to light your own firework on new year's eve. People buy hundreds or even thousands of euros of firework and set it off in a couple hours. That's just absolutely ridiculous if you ask me.
Additionally, around the end of the year, you very often hear really loud firework during the day, which is really annoying. And on December the 31st you hear fireworks starting from 10AM in the morning non-stop until ~3 AM the next day. It's really quite a bother.
And then there are the dozens of dead and injured people every year, and all the cars, garbage cans, houses and letter boxes set on fire.
