Check out the photo above, snatched from Gizmodo showing the city of Oslo, Norway all lit up on New Year's Eve. Here is the local's explanation:
"In Norway there's no tradition for fireworks arranged by the city. It's too cold in January to gather downtown for the celebrations, so everyone just go out into their gardens or a nearby open spot, launch their rockets and then head back inside. The result is a view like this, with fireworks shooting up from absolutely everywhere at midnight on January 1."
