Happy New Year, everyone!
According to the Asian Zodiac, 2007 is the Year of the Boar. In Japan, anyway. In China, some translations list it as the Year of the Pig. Kind of the same thing, but kind of... not.

For one thing, pigs are cuter than boars. Cartoon pigs, anyway. And maybe potbellied pigs. Or little baby pigs...

On the other hand, what boars lack in aesthetics, they make up for in brute strength - and wouldn't you rather have your year dedicated to a strong, bold, take-it-to-the-mat kind of animal than your basic ham and bacon variety? I'm just saying...

Whatever your preference, have a great 2007! May it be your best year yet!
