Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year, often called the Lunar New Year, is February 14, 2010. This year, is the Year of the Tiger. Chinese New Year is considered a major holiday for the Chinese, and is often celebrated here in America in cities with large populations of ethnic Chinese. Get into the Chinese New Year spirit with these resources...
  • Chinese New Year Crafts from Kaboose (Note - Kaboose.com has great crafts and I often refer to this site in my postings. However, I noticed recently that they've incorporated a lot of annoying "interstitial" ads, i.e., you have to view or choose to skip the ad before you get to the content, in this case, a craft project. The content on the site is still stellar, but be prepared to skip a lot of ads.)
  • Chinese New Year Images via a Google search
  • The History of Chinese New Year from History.com - includes information on specific traditions, foods and videos
  • Books on Chinese New Year - Parents and teachers -- check out to use at home or in the classroom
