Happy Chinese New Year!

Posted by w_thames_the_d on February 1, 2011


The Chinese, being descendants of Pangu or some other ‘deity’ do their calendar a little different from the barbarians or rest of the world, so now is their new year. Today is the first day and Beijing sounds like a war zone with all the fireworks and such. It is a great holiday actually and most of the Chinese are pretty happy now .

    dude, the chinese are based on the lunar calendar…which is used by the bulk of asia AND the middle east.

    I personally think B.C. and A.D. should NOT be used either… 🙂
