New Year's Trumpets
Colorful trumpets of different shapes and sizes are the staple of New Year's celebration here. Made from paper with - I must say - remarkable craftsmanship, they have already been offered for sale on the streets since a few days ago.
As anywhere else in the world, tonight revelers will get together on the streets and in many other public places here to celebrate the coming of the new year. Trumpets like these are what many of them would bring to help them in the noise-making hullabaloo typical in new year's celebration.
Being a person who doesn't like crowds and noise, I would just be celebrating it at home, having a barbecue with family and friends and then some reflective moments on my own about the year that has passed and the resolutions for the year ahead.
Happy New Year, everyone!
