Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year! Today is the start of the Year of the Rabbit, and Chinese communities across the world will be busy celebrating. Special dumplings and spring rolls will be eaten, and children will be given given "lucky money". You can read more about the customs here, and a great overview of the history of China here. There is plenty of information about Modern Chinese history here and here is a useful timeline.
