It's Chinese New Year! (The first new moon after the winter solstice) This year, we're starting the Year of the Monkey. Check out Quatr.us' pages on Chinese fireworks, traditional Chinese gods, Chinese religion, and the I Ching. Chinese New Year marks the beginning of rice planting in China, so it's a good day to eat rice for dinner.
