All in all I find those crackers nerve-racking and also dangerous. But that's what might be called cultural standard. It is accepted and allowed that drunken people may smash crackers and endanger themselves and others. I'm sure it wouldn't be a good idea going along the streets here at midnight Sylvester... and as it is allowed to start using crackers here from 12.00 am Sylvester to 12.00 am the day after New Year's Day it even might be dangerous all that time. What do you think about crackers? I don't mind all the nice fireworks etc., but I especially dislike all kinds of crackers.In my opinion it is some kind of insanity, but I must admit that in former times I was infected by this same insanity too - ok, in Germany you say: "Man soll kein Wasser predigen, wenn man selbst Wein trinkt." (don't preach about water if you drink wine yourself)... I'd be interested in your opinions.
