VUVUZELA: A Safer Tool to Welcome New Year in a Loud Fashion!


VUVUZELA: A Safer Tool to Welcome New Year in a Loud Fashion!

Lighting firecrackers during New Year to celebrate the said occasion with a bang often poses great danger. Sometimes, they use deafening firecrackers just for the sole purpose of being boisterous because they believe that this will bring them good luck for the coming year.


Occasionally, believing won’t do us any harm. But this time, just a simple mistake or manufacturing defect might cause you to end up with a blown up hand or a missing finger, or worse, it can be a hostile way to welcome death instead of new year.

The government has been proposing to use alternative earsplitting tools which produces loud noises like “torotot”, “kaldero”, or just play loud music through your audio components. But new year celebrants seemed to be unsatisfied with the noise that these things produce so they still resort to lighting up fireworks to create an explosive noise.

But I have a good suggestion and a good alternative to firecrackers. Hopefully it would satisfy these people.

Let me introduce to you the VUVUZELA?

The vuvuzela, also known as "lepatata," is a plastic blowing horn approximately 1 m long that emits a loud drone that sounds like a huge hum of mad bees. They are most commonly linked with South African football fans, but have been present in Mexican stadiums since the 1970s. In domestic and international matches, hundreds of these horns are brought to grounds by fans who then proceed to blow them throughout matches, creating a cacophony of sound that rarely ceases. Some adore them, some find them forcefully annoying.

Broadcasters from other countries certainly found themselves to be annoyed during the recent Confederations Cup in South Africa. Some complained to FIF that the raucous noise is interfering with their broadcasts. While others claimed that the vuvuzela enhances the atmosphere during matches. However, it needs to be blown in the correct way and not the chaotic fashion, which is sometimes heard in the Confederations Cup.

We can use Vuvuzela this New Year's eve instead of dangerous firecrackers. In that way, we can have a prosperous New Year celebration without having any firework related casualties.
