New Year's 2020: Dubai puts on stunning fireworks show at world's tallest building

  • Publicado el 30 dic 2019
  • Dubai, United Arab Emirates welcomed the new year with a mesmerizing display of fireworks from the world's tallest building, the iconic Burj Khalifa.
    For nearly 10 minutes, fireworks lit the sky over Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, as hundreds of thousands gathered downtown to watch the spectacular display.
    The New Year’s Eve display at the 828-meter-tall (2,716-foot-tall) skyscraper is just one of seven different fireworks shows across the emirate.

    It kind of hurts reading these comments from months ago of people including me, wishing for a happy and successful
    2020. Here we are, almost April, in a Pandemic that can last for months. This just shows that we can do things for our future but never know our future. Like that one old lady said in one video, “Just keep smiling, that’s all we can do.”

    2019 was an awesome year for me, but 2020 is going to be even better.
    Here on January 1, 2020.
    EDIT: Holy hell lmao, I did not know what was coming when I wrote that message two years ago. 2020 was absolutely insane, and 2021 has been a very weird continuation as well. As a teenager, I’ve really come into my own as a person in the last two years, and a lot of good has happened to me…heading into 2022 I’m very happy, but I’m also optimistic for everyone going forward. I really think we’re going to be able to whether our way through Covid this year, and move on with our lives as we continue on through this decade. There’s still so much to appreciate about life guys. It’s an exciting time for me as I’ll be graduating from high school this year, and I hope that all of you can find that excitement again in your own lives too. Cheers to ‘22 everyone.

      @Tina Carson I dont think he is worried about things. he is just stating a fact. when people tell me happy new year i think "I HOPE SO" because I do not see it,and dont know what else to think or say. I am not sour, I simply see things as they are, not as I hope them to be .
