As I've said before, the Philippines love the Christmas season. This definitely includes New Year's Eve; parties are everywhere! Fireworks are used in celebrations around the world, but not like they are here. It seems like every street corner has a vendor selling fireworks. Luckily, they're smart enough to advertise 'no smoking or testing' (I know you'd probably find an attendant smoking on site in a few countries I've visited, like Indonesia).
