Last Thursday was Chinese New Year, or Spring Festival as it is literally called. The Chinese are serious about celebrating the new year, and the whole festival takes 15 days. The last day is the classical lantern festivals, when people light candles and send small lanterns into the sky.
The year of the Rabbit is traditionally associated with home and family, artistic pursuits and peace. It is also easier to make a good income in the Year of the Rabbit, than in the ferocious Year of the Tiger, which just ended.
At YAY the Chinese New Year brings a welcoming vacation to our employees in China.
过年好! (Happy New Year!)
