Old Fogies New Year's Eve

Warsaw Senior Missionaries
decided to get together for a little celebration on New Year's Eve.
Dean said, "Do you think we'll be able to last til 10:00?"


But we did!
And we enjoyed a lovely evening of dinner, visiting and
writing some crazy New Year's resolutions.
At midnight, the sky around us lit up and
a thousand booms filled the sky.
You see, anyone can buy and set off fireworks in Poland---
and they do! Especially on New Year's Eve! As we stood on the balconey and
watched, we didn't know which way to look. They sky was brilliant with color
and sparkle! I've never seen such a display...it was amazing. Unfortunately,
it was impossible to catch it on my camera, so you'll just have to take my word for it.
It was truly memorable. . . just as we know 2009 will be!

Fun! I know, isn't it wonderful seeing fireworks all across the sky? So different than anything you see in the States. Our first seven years in Poland we lived on the ninth floor of our building and had a wonderful view of our entire town and saw the fireworks EVERYWHERE. I just love it.
