Celebrating Chinese New Year 2020

Today, January 25, 2020 (Saturday) is Chinese New Year, the very first day of a new lunar year. This new year ushers in the Year of the Rat, the first of the 12 zodiac signs in the Chinese calender. This year it is a Metal Rat.

I would like to wish everyone celebrating this auspicious occasion a Happy & Prosperous Chinese New Year, as it is normally referred to here in this part of the world. Elsewhere it is also referred to as the Lunar New Year Festival or more commonly known as the Spring Festival in China.
