I'm not sure if I could start this thread, but I saw a thread on 2013 Gregorian calendar's new year, so I thought why the heck not made one for lunar new year ? After all it is a major celebration in lots of countries, lunar new year or Chinese new year or whatever you call it. It is not like the Chinese are the only one celebrating it anyway.
It is the last day of the year as of today (or at least, in my time). If you do celebrate lunar new year, What preparation have you and your family make ? What tradition do you have in your country to celebrate it ?
As for me, I'm with my family in our hometown in Kaohsiung Taiwan. We have everything prepared, all the food and kumquat tree and little fire crackers. We bought like tons of fire crackers so this year is going to end with quite a loud bang for us ! The previous year hasn't been quite good for me, but I heard people predicting next year is going to be better since the snake is symbol of rebirth, so I hope they are correct about that
