Oh, hell yeah. I celebrated New Year 3 times last year: Western, Vietnamese, and Thai. Songkran was the best. Soaked head to toe, pool dance party until 3am. Buy your super-soaker early. Stores sell out.

I'd do the same, but for different reasons. I'm atheist, but the historical record is pretty convincing that a man named Jesus really lived 2000 years ago, and that he was a rabble-rouser, and had a bit of a following. Looking around me today, I have a hard time naming a single person who has had a deeper impact on the world. Think of it: from the Roman persecutions, through Charlemagne, the Medieval church, the Crusades, the great thinkers and artists and musicians and architects who helped shape the western world we know
I'm stunned nobody has yet made the cowboy coffee/cowboy neal connection.
Couldn't have said it better myself. assert(Win2K == best && ME == worst);
