It is certain: this year fireworks are banned

A big disappointment for fireworks lovers. This year, no one is allowed to fire fireworks during the New Year. It has been discussed for a long time, but today it has been officially announced.

The ban is no surprise. Previously, police and mayors said they‘d rather have New Year’s Eve without fireworks. It makes a lot of casualties. They can‘t have hospitals in addition to all corona-patients.

The government says they’re going to check strictly during the New Year‘s Eve. Anyone who does have fireworks will be fined at least 100 euros.

Sellers of fireworks are not happy with the government’s decision. They say they‘re going to miss out on a lot of money. The government has therefore decided that all fireworks vendors get money so they don’t go bankrupt.
