Chinese New Year!

Tomorrow, February 7th, 2008 is the first day of the year of the rat, according to the Chinese lunar calender. Tonight, New Year’s Eve, families will gather for the biggest holiday season it called reunion dinner. Fireworks will light up the sky all through the night and continuing for the rest of the week. Families will enjoy a big dinner together and watch special TV shows with China’s top performers. In some ways, the Chinese Spring Festival can be compared to the Christmas season, as it is a real family holiday. The Spring Festival ends two weeks later (this year on February 21) with the Lantern Festival.
For some people, this will be the only time in the year that they can get together with their families.
This reminds me Norouz in Iran.
