Big Deal a few fireworks is nothing for the New Year!
They could not even compare to our 4th of July fireworks like in New York City, or Washington DC, or even Disneylands.
I'll bet more people in your country will turn on the Television for the Rose Parade in Pasadena, than go to your own fireworks show. 1/2 million is a drop in the bucket compared to our Rose Parade, where 2,000,000 line the 5 mile parade route, and probably 100,000,000 will watch in on Television just in the USA. Over a Billion will watch it worldwide. Probably 4 times your entire population, will watch the Rose Bowl Game that afternoon, just n the USA.
Your such a nationalist & so Anti Australian Greeney2.
Where does this xenophobia & hatred of anything that's not American come from.

The what .... the rose parade .... (( never heard of it & iv never seen it on Australian television ever ))
This is what im talking about ( your delusions of grandeur ) the fact that you think Australia would have this rose parade on Australian Television. (( why ))Here is a question for you.
In around 5 hours, Australia will be the first major economy to celebrate the arrival of the new year & 2013.
Then Asia will celebrate the arrival of 2013.
Then Africa will celebrate the arrival of 2013.
Then in around 15 hours from now Europe will celebrate the arrival of 2013..
By this time Australia's will be well drunk, & hung over ( having already done many firsts for 2013 ) first drink, first BBQ, First fight, first breakup, first shag for 2013.
& as Australia enters it's 2nd day of 2013 ..... the USA & Canada will just be leaving 2012 & entering 2013 with the rest of the world.
Now why on earth do you think that While Australia wakes up after a public holiday on January 2 2013 that we would be even slightly interested in what the USA & Canada, & Mexico are doing back in 2012.
Australia television will be replaying the party's from around Australia over & over again, reporting on the clean ups & fights from the new year celebrations & the drunk party goers pick them selves up from the gutters/parks & beaches from around Australia & the pacific & Asia. ( keeping in mind Australia is only one 1.5 to 4 hours away from Thailand ( full moon party & new years party ) Bali & Singapore, Vietnam ... ect ect
& just 4 - 6 hours away from Fiji, New Zealand, Tahiti ... ect ect.
Now what on earth makes you think that Australian's sit around watching this ... ( let me check what you called it again )
This rose parade ..... instead of partying our butts of in & around Australia & Asia / the Pacific.
By the time The USA welcomes in the new year Australian's are well & truly over it.
Do you really think that instead of partying our butts of we would rather wait 2 days to watch the USA be the last nation in the world to see in the new year.
What ever you to choose to believe mate.
& happy new year.
