Today certified shops are allowed to sell fireworks, so they opened really early (seven o'clock am) and the buyers have been queuing all day to spend their money.
The downside: they were allowed to buy it today, but....
They aren't allowed to set it on fire till 22:00 pm on New Years Eve.
Then again... They don't seem to listen to the law as I noticed when leaving the studio.
Just three more days and were in 2018!
