New Years Eve 2011 in Möllevångstorget aka 'möllan'.
Malmö, Sweden, the local community, with easy access to fireworks, fire rockets at each other. A little drunk and at a party just one block away, we decided it would be a great idea to go take a look! It was insane, and at one point we spotted a young child peering over a rocket that had just failed to go off.
The irony is that the Swedish government allow the sale of fireworks to anyone and everyone whereas they control the sale of alcohol, as being a danger to the public. One reason sited as being due to an increase in domestic violence if alcohol is available on weekends. As such only the government is allowed to sell you alcohol from 9-6 mon-fri and only from the one government owned 'systembolaget' in town. Even at the airport, you can only buy duty free if you are leaving the EU, if you are flying within the EU, you are turned away at the till. Public safety it seems, is a little inconsistent.
Contrary to this video, I found Sweden to be a safe, beautiful and peaceful country where (unlike the UK) the public services seem to work for you as opposed to against you
