Well it’s Sunday, 29 January 2006. That means a new lunar New Year has begun. When I first came to the island in 1973, most of the locals celebrated the occasion. Now, however, the Julian New Year celebrations have taken over. Very few businesses are off for the lunar New year any more. If fact, there isn’t much recoginition of the event at all. But, I can still remember how significant the event was to the local culture and recognize that it is part of their heritage. So here is a Happy New Year of the Dog to everyone.
