Chinese New Year On The Way

Chinese new year will come next week (on 7th of February) and one week later, it's Valentine day big grin.

There's a lot of preparations have been done for this two events. For example, Atma Jaya university held a bazaar on their campus since few days ago. I just came back from their campus and today's event was karaoke. The singer had a nice voice, since they practice very often and some of them are the winner on some singing contest.

My campus will also have this kind of event which will be held in 14-17 February. It will be two events at the time, Chinese new year and Valentine day. I don't know much about this event, as i just knew it from one of my students which i met at the bazaar, but they will give me more information and i will publish it on my blog when i got the detailed information. Stay tune....


  1. The holiday usually begins on the first day of the first lunar month. This makes the lunar calendar much more accurate than the Julian calendar. Jokes are often made about the Chinese being backward for celebrating the new year late. In reality the west celebrates the new year early.

  2. Speaking of calendars, we compiled events for 2010 Chinese New Year Celebrations within US and some parts of Canada. I hope your readers will find it useful!
