Signs Of The Times: Fireworks By Panda

For the past week or so, we have been hearing fireworks going off pretty much every night. These blasts, we understand, are merely the precursor to the big event on New Year's Eve. We've been told to be prepared to be kept up all night under a constant barrage of noise and light. In the meantime, we can (possibly) contribute to all of this mayhem by purchasing fireworks of our own at any of the scores of stands that have been popping up seemingly on every corner. No word yet on how the anticipated tussle between Mommy and Daddy will work itself out!

As for why fireworks have such a long and important history in China (have you heard they were invented here?), Z is our resident expert when it comes to that little tidbit. So stay tuned...
