A few words, just before the Aussies start the show:
I whish you all a happy and healthy new 2018!!!
We (here in Germany) celebrate this day usually with a "Feuerzangenbowle" although it is not too cold this year. At midnight we are allowed (only this day) to burn some fireworks and firecrackers, but due to our cats and dogs we don't do that. Tomorrow we have a day off (tribute to the Feuerzangenbowle) and we will start breakfast with a self-made "New Year's Bread" (sorry, no translation).
Fantastic Feuerzangenbowle!! In China, 1st-Jan is not the traditional 'New Year', however, everybody can get 1 day's holiday at that day. We drink rice wine, Baijiu (烧黄二酒) when have dinner with families and friends!
