Chinese New Year of the Tiger

February 14th, as many of you know was Valentines Day. Valentines Day is often considered as the most romantic holiday of the year. It is a day of affection and love; it is a day for lovers. However, Sunday was also a very important day for the Chinese as it was Chinese New Year’s Day. (Chinese have their own calendar and it runs on a different format and this year for the Year of Tiger, New Year’s Day falls coincidentally on the Valentine’s Day.) Spring Festival is the most important celebration for the Chinese and it is a tradition to spend the day with families. This is the only day of the year busy workers can gather with their families and reunite with their children and it is really the only family day they have. Choosing between family and romance could be difficult. Some may think that love is invaluable and a waste of time and energy but there are still many hopeless romantics who opposes to this idea. Either way, the choice you might have had to make on Sunday proves a lot to both your family and your lover. Hope you all had a romantic day. Lastly, Happy Chinese New Year of the Tiger.
