sooooooooooooooooo happy they are over. It’s a big money scam...they already have Valentine’s Day stuff out around here!!They start putting it in your face so early that it’s hard to enjoy the holiday b/c you are sick of it by the time it actually rolls around.

    • Chinadoll, I found this for you:

      Chinese New Year or Spring Festival is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. It is sometimes called the Lunar New Year, especially by people outside China. The festival traditionally begins on the first day of the first lunar month (Chinese: 正月; pinyin: zhēng yuè) in the Chinese calendar and ends on the 15th; this day is called Lantern Festival. Chinese New Year’s Eve is known as Chúxī (除夕, abbr. for 年除夕 Niánchúxī, Chúxì in Taiwan). It literally means “Year-pass Eve“.

      Celebrated in areas with large populations of ethnic Chinese, Chinese New Year is considered a major holiday for the Chinese and has had influence on the new year celebrations of its geographic neighbours, as well as cultures with whom the Chinese have had extensive interaction.[citation needed] These include Taiwanese, Koreans, Mongolians, Nepalese, Bhutanese, Vietnamese, and formerly the Japanese before 1873. In Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, and other countries with significant Chinese populations, Chinese New Year is also celebrated, largely by overseas Chinese, and has, to varying degrees, become part of the traditional culture of these countries. In Canada, although Chinese New Year is not an official holiday, many ethnic Chinese hold large celebrations and Canada Post issues New Year’s themed stamps in domestic and international rates.

      Although the Chinese calendar traditionally did not use continuously numbered years, its years are now often numbered from the reign of Huangdi outside China. But at least three different years numbered 1 are now used by various writers, causing the year beginning in 2008 to be 4706, 4705, or 4645.

    • BeachBum,
      It’s a cake that is oval shaped, more like a bread, with icing and filling (apple, cinnamon, cream cheese). It’s decorated in the colors of Mardi Gras, Green, gold and purple. Also, there is a plastic baby hidden inside and whoever gets it must buy the next King Cake. They start making and selling them right after Christmas. And they are delicious!

    • It officially ends for me when my husband goes back to work. Then and only then can I have my own schedule back!

      He said he was going in today. He stopped at the door and said he may come home half day and we’d go down to a movie.

      I don’t want to go to a movie. I want to work darn it!

    • Gosh am I the only one who enjoyed the holidays? My vacation started December 19th and I don’t have to go back to work until January 5th. The days are counting down to that dreadful day...hahaha... I enjoy being home with my children, we play games, sleep in, watch movies until late and just relax. It is a real “down time” for me. We did go back to my hometown to visit a little, but mostly - we stay home, no stress, just ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh........

      I love being home!  And, I don’t want to go back on the 5th...lol

    • Call me crazy but I wish it would last a little longer!!  

      The spirit of the holiday and to have family around that you don't get to see often. It gives me a moment of peace instead  of the craziness of just another day.

    • Teeky just find the fun in the holiday - I make sure my holiday shopping is done by Thanksgiving.  And, I avoid all big box stores from Black Friday through the new year. I live in Pittsburgh and I know I could ask for stress if I wanted it... I don’t look for it and I don’t welcome it.  

      What I do do.... I embrace the time I have with my children. The holiday’s allow me to take my time, there are no schedules to meet or timelines to keep. Without those, you can enjoy the little things and truly slllloooowwww down to the basics of just being with each other.

      Cheers to everyone...  estatic
