For no reason, there will be really huge, impressive fireworks displays over the Kremlin. Or other neighborhoods in Moscow.

I’m not sure why this is. Apparently, the fireworks salesmen here give really, really good discounts. The people walking in the street barely even glance up at the big huge booming lights in the sky anymore. Which makes me wonder who it is that’s getting such a thrill out of this stuff? People who enjoy making their cats freak out and hide inside the freon compressor in the Frigidaireski?
