The noise of the fireworks here is deafening... in its absence. I haven't heard so much as a gaseous emission from a mouse.

Never seemed to me like the Jan-1 new year meant much in China. I was in Shanghai for Chinese New Year in 2006, and the amount of fireworks was really impressive. People would basically throw a pre-rigged box into the middle of a street and light it up, and for the next several minutes there would be constant fireworks, until you couldn't see anything for all of the smoke. I got a few pictures from my hotel of multiple boxes going off at the same time, though 12 years ago my camera wasn't so hot.

Happy New Year everyone. May it be a year worth talking about how good it was when we reach 12/31/18.
Happy New Year to everyone and hoping we can live by the following:

May those who love us, love us
And those that don't love us
May God turn their hearts
And if He cannot turn their hearts
May He turn their ankles
So we'll know them by their limping
