New Year’s Eve: Between Meditation And Fireworks To Conjugate The Covid 19

Must Read

A New Year’s Eve that will have a particular taste this year Indeed, several Mauritian families have decided to welcome the new year without festivities and especially, without firecrackers. Of course, at midnight on December 31, 2021, the firecrackers were de rigueur to perpetuate the tradition and to conjugate the bad fate but others chose the recollection and discretion.

This idea had germinated on social networks to support and sympathize with those who lost their loved ones because of Covid 19.

The idea has gained ground to such an extent that it has gone viral on social networks. This has undeniably had an impact on the sale of firecrackers and other fireworks. Some salesmen even talk about a drop of more than 75% in sales.

Others have also suggested that instead of the traditional firecrackers, many Mauritians have lit a candle lantern to express their mourning and contemplation.

An idea shared by Dya, who lost three family members, all victims of Covid 19 in the space of a few days.

This December 31, 2021, she and her family decided to gather around a dinner, but not to feast but rather to pay tribute to the deceased.

It is the same for another family of Poudre d’Or, who wanted to remain anonymous. This family also lost a loved one to Covid 19.

The members of this family are definitely not in the mood to celebrate. Some of them have even decided to bequeath the money they used to spend on firecrackers to associations or NGOs.
