The Grand Chinese New Year

I’ve always wanted to go to the Chinese New Year.  It’s actually a bit different than the rest of the world.  We celebrate New Years on December 31st – January 1st.  This marks the beginning of a grand New Year, where many make a resolution to change something in their lives.  Many also fail to accomplish their resolutions.

The Chinese New Year is a bit different though.  In 2012 it fell on January 23rd.  Which was recently, however, next year in 2013, it will fall on February 10th.  While I missed the chance to go to a Chinese New year in the special Water Dragon year of 2012, I plan on making the next one.  Here are a few photos of the Chinese New Year linking to a lot more.
