It is still a few months away from the Chinese Lunar New Year.

The coming festival is the mooncake festival when that time, the moon is the brigthest and look more bigger and rounded the time of the year. Kids will carry their lantern aat night round their neighbourhood area. U know how lantern look like? The traditional lanterns are lighted by a stick of candle which places inside, if carelessly deal, the lantern can be easily go kazoo. Nowdays, there are electronic lantern, some play melody too.

Oh, by the way, before the mooncake festival(8th month of the Lunar calender), the 7th month (lunar calender) is the Hungry Ghost festival. So be sure to stay at home at night during that period of the month.

That's interesting, I am not chinese neither I live in China, we have China Town here in NYC - a cool place - I got my little turtle there. I was in China Town on Aug 1st, passers-by congrated each other, some dude congrated me and my girlfriend with New Year in English and then in Chinese, which apparently we wouldn't understand, so I felt like congrat evey Chinese person here on forum with Happy New Year, and I wish everybody - Chinese, Turks, Brits, Yankees, Russians, etc - Happy New Year!!!
Wait for me in September I'd congrat everyone with Jewish Happy New Year!!!
