Slept through the start of theNew Year

Fireworks this year here in Sakon Nakhon were 'almost' nonexistent. A few could be heard, almost hours apart on new year's eve day.  Heard just a few fireworks throughout the evening. Spent the early evening with friends and was asleep by 9:30 pm. Normally I would wake up at midnight because of the fireworks, not so this year.  
The no fireworks rule imposed by the government was mostly observed. Personally I don't mind and neither does my dog, but it's got to be a financial pain for the fireworks industry.  
 
Many of these restrictions will continue until the 100 day mourning period ends, around January 22.  However there is also the 1 year mourning period during which further restrictions may apply
