Happy Chinese New Year! (2014)

Happy Chinese New Year! This time around, it’s the year of the horse.

Why is there a separate new year for the Chinese, and why does it change every year? Simply put, the Chinese calendar is a lunisolar calendar, which is based on the cycles of both the moon and sun.

Don’t forget to comb your hair down, and wear a red polo and some beige/khaki slacks (a.k.a. “check out these pants” pants)! (Funny, I can’t seem to find an image. My friend came up with this idea a few years ago of making Chinese New Year “Dress like an Asian” Day; rest assured, neither of us are being racist).
