Countdown to New Year's Eve: 4 days to go

The fireworks-sellers are out in force and flogging their wares. When I buy fireworks, I generally buy them from either the Scouts or from Landsbjörg, the Association for Search and Rescue. Every year they help hundreds of people out of difficulties ranging from pulling cars out of snowdrifts to very difficult rescues from stranded ships, and it is all done by volunteers. They depend on the income they get from selling fireworks and as a recipient of aid from them I feel it is my duty to support them.

The forst two images are from an annual fireworks display held in conjunction with the New Year's Eve bonfire in Garðabær, a neighbouring city of Reykjavík, and the rest are from the bonfire itself:
