2020 (the year, not the hindsight) reached the halfway point last week as we edged into the second half with understandable caution given what has been tossed our way thus far this go around the sun.
As we mentioned in a previous article the annual transcontinental birthday bash took on a different flavor with fewer community-wide celebrations taking place, particularly those that involved the phenomena of fireworks.
But in true Bipeninsular fashion, folks reacted with some serious celebrating despite the dearth of displays at the usual community venues.
We had heard fireworks were selling big and judging from the view gleaned at the shore of N3 World Headquarters on Saturday night the boost in sales wasn’t going to be about hoarding like the run on toilet paper earlier this year.
No, these purchases were meant to be consumed as if an approaching expiration date loomed on their packages.These were meant to go out with a thunderous showing of luminescence
And from our observation point, a glorious showing it was.
Under a large yellow moon the denizens of Hess Lake poured out a cavalcade of pyrotechnics to be proud of. It was lengthy, luminous and captivating.
And for a while one could put the trials and tribulations of this challenging half year on hold and embrace the celebratory spirit our country's birthday deserves.
