Did you know: that the Chinese New Year doesn’t officially begin until the 3rd of February this year? I’m citing Wikipedia here, so take this with a grain of salt, but according to the article, “Chinese New Year is the longest and most important festivity in the Chinese Lunar Calendar”—and being based on a lunar calendar, the date of the Chinese New Year changes. 2011 will be the year of the Rabbit, and last until Jan 23, 2012.
To be candid, I wasn’t aware that the specific date of the new Chinese calendar didn’t begin until February, but in anticipation of the upcoming year of the rabbit, I’m gonna go with the bunny theme here like I planned it.
