Happy Birthday on this 7th Day of the Lunar New Year

Today is the Seventh day of Chinese New Year, a day traditionally known as Rénrì (人日, the common man's birthday), the day when everyone grows one year older. It is celebrated not only in China, but also in other regions influenced by Chinese culture. Some traditional families serve Misua, a Chinese type of angel hair noodle, or noodles to ensure long life.

Read more about the 7th Day and what people do on this day.

No, we are not done with the Chinese New Year celebration just yet. Remember this is a 15-day festival and we are only at the halfway mark. Some of us yum-seng (toast to success) and lo-hei (Prosperity Toss) every day of the celebration until the very last day, i.e., on the 15th day, which falls on March 5.

Enjoy while the night is still young.. :D
