Old Dogs and Golden Pigs

Xin nian kuai le!
We had a bit of a party at Jia's home last night. Far too much food and drinks. We found some nice spots to watch the insanity of fireworks being set off everywhere. Some of the people in this neighborhood had some big ones to light. There were some impressive lights and decorations all around as well. We tried going to Green for some beer after we ran out just before midnight. We found Liu a bit loaded at the gate--he was happy to see us, but too drunk to let us drink at the closed restaurant. I got a few photos, but I don't know how well they came out. I'll post those a little later.

I read that it was actually a "Fire" pig year, not a "golden" pig year.

I've heard both, so I don't know what to believe... Maybe it's a golden fire? Really, I don't care either way as long as I have a good year.
