On this New Year’s Eve I experienced some spectacular play of fireworks in the city of London. The event was held at ferris wheel “London Eye”. It was a cold winter night preceded by some mild showers, making it colder.
We reached there at around 9 pm from Charring cross tube station. Reaching there earlier was important as tube stations around the place were scheduled to shutdown by 10 pm. We stood there waiting for 3 hours on the other side of river Thames, exactly opposite to the Giant Wheel. Finally, the countdown began at a minute before 12:00 midnight.
At the end of the countdown, radically the sky was filled with all patterns of fireworks from all over, followed immediately by other. They had firecrackers fitted around each of the cabins of ferris wheel, giving a fabulous circular effect. This special show went around for 20 long minutes ending with applause from more than 150000 odd people.
Like these electrifying fireworks, this New Year is special too. Here are the few statistics :
- It starts with MONDAY and ends also on MONDAY
- Almost no PUBLIC HOLIDAYS on SUNDAYS
- This year has got highest number of SUNDAYS and SATURDAYS
So enjoy the least working year in your life.
2007 – A YEAR WITH A DIFFERENCE. LET’S MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Wishing you all a very Happy and Wonderful New Year !!
