Since firecracker explosions have the characteristics of an impulse noise, they can cause hearing loss, serious personal injuries, fire hazards, annoyance, and even death. Their peak sound pressure levels at a distance of some meters can exceed the limit value of 140 dB, at which hearing protection is necessary. This article deals with some noise aspects resulting from firecracker explosions, which were measured during New Year's Eve. Apart from principal factors influencing the acoustic power of such an explosion, some new statistical aspects are described. A special emphasis is given to the probability distribution function of peak sound pressure levels, originating from a great number of firecracker explosions. Generally, the probability distribution closely follows the Rayleigh distribution, but when the number of explosions in unit time is high enough, it tends to a Gaussian distribution. Such transition is accelerated when reflections are taken into account, since in this case the number of peaks between two sequential zero crossings of sound pressure increases.
