新年快乐! Xin Nian Kuai Le! Happy Chinese New Year! Happy Year of the Dog! Happy everything from all of us here at Shanghaiist. Eat well. Drink well. And don’t forget to let go of the firecrackers.
Watching the entire city light up with fireworks on Chinese New Year’s Eve is one of our favorite things to do in Shanghai each year. Choose your vantage point well … and enjoy.
Also, this being their year and all, why not celebrate the new year by adopting a dog? Plenty of cute ones awaiting a home at Second Chance Animal Aid.
