It is Chinese new year. The year of the goat or sheep (both has the same term in Chinese) starts today.
Living in the west I find it quite interesting to see people on the other side of the world celebrate this abundantly. Not only in People Republic of China, in several Asian countries today is a public holiday too. For me and others in the west today is business as usual; working and going to school, nothing special.
Nevertheless I genuinely wish happy new year to those who celebrate. May the year of the goat brings us happiness, good health and wealth (I am sick of the ongoing economy crises here).
