Hello again, and happy new year! It has been an absolute pleasure spending this past year writing this blog, and overall just a spectacular year for the hookah community. We've seen a lot of great products come out in the last year, ranging from the Oduman Ignis, all the way to the new B2 Reaper at the end of year. I just wanted to take a minute to thank all of the spectacular people that continue to further the industry; everyone from Shika, Trifecta, Lavoo, Alchemist, and so on, for making this a stupendous year. It's because of quality manufacturers like these that make our small community fantastic. Their focus on quality and furthering the industry shouldn't go unnoticed, so make sure that you show your appreciation to them, and anyone that has helped the community! I also wanted to give a shout out to you. Yes, you. It's people like you - readers, supporters, quality consumers, opinion givers, and enthusiasts - that make our community so great. It's wonderful to be part of such a spectacular community where everyone is willing to discuss hookah and help others in the process. Regardless of where you're reading this, be it r/hookah, Hookah Enthusiasts, HookahJohn's Circle Of Friends, etc., I just want to thank you for helping the community grow, whichever community that may be. It's important to remember that we're all a part of one community, not many small ones, and that's the Hookah community. I'm very excited to see what new comes to fruition in 2017, as I think we can all agree that 2016 has been great to us all. I hope you all stay tuned to the B2 blog, as we have a lot of great content coming in the new year. Anyway, I just wanted to give you all real welcoming to the new year. I'm going to continue to enjoy this bowl of Trifecta Earl Grey on my new reaper, and enjoy the new year! Sorry this isn't a "real" blog post, the true content will be back next week. As always guys, thanks so much for reading, and happy smokes!
