Happy New Year 2010
In Rome, families, friends and neighbors (often wearing red underwear to bring good luck) gather together on New Year's eve to welcome the new year. At midnight fireworks are ignited all over the city from balconies and terraces. We joined friends from work to celebrate 2010, and the rainy night cleared just at midnight, allowing us to go out on the terrace and enjoy the fireworks in the nieghborhood. (I had on red socks. Does that count as red underwear?)
