My sister hired a videoke machine that we can use to sing while waiting for 2014 to arrive. Each one of us sings our favorite song and just sing our lungs out. I sung a song or two while the kids and others had their own style of singing. It was so loud and noisy but it's New Year's eve anyway so we have the license to go crazy and get noisy. In fact, the loud sound of firecrackers are deafening already hhaha..
Few years back, we also hired drums and guitars like seagull s6 acoustic before NY's eve and all we had to do is use it to play with it and make some noise. My brothers and his friends played and it attracts people in our neighborhood.
It's fun to celebrate Christmas and New year in the Philippines for the tradition is very much different here, definitely much noisier.
