Boom! Half of Danes want fireworks rules curbed
A survey showed that more than 50 percent want to make fireworks illegal on all days aside from New Years Eve
You might notice an uptick in blasts from today and on to January 1, as that is the period in which it is legal to shoot off fireworks in Denmark.
But according to a majority of Danes, that wouldn’t be so in the future.
A new Kantar Gallup survey conducted on behalf of Gjensidige insurance firm has revealed that 50.8 percent think shooting off fireworks on days other than New Years Eve should be illegal.
And only 12.6 percent responded that the current legal window of December 27 – January 1 should be expanded.

Climate over pets
Previously, many were against fireworks to protect the wellbeing of pets, but that group has now been surpassed by those who believe that curbing the blasts would better protect the climate.
“Even though it might be a bit surprising, it also says a lot about the time we live in – a time where nature and the environment is much more in focus,” said Gjensidige spokesperson, Henrik Sagild.
Sagild urged fireworks users to enjoy them responsibly – use protective goggles and avoid getting close to fireworks after consuming alcohol.
