Guonian! Today we move from the year of the ox to the year of the tiger. For the next fifteen days, join in the Chinese New Year celebrations, making sure to catch the culminating Lantern Festival, where people carry paper lanterns in the street in a giant parade and young men regale the crowds with a dragon dance. The dragon is traditionally made of bamboo, silk, and paper, and might stretch for more than a hundred feet in length. Even if you can’t participate in a dragon parade you can still enjoy the spirit of Chinese New Year with the Etsy community. Roar— it’s the year of the tiger!

    Happy, healthy Chinese New Year to all! Love the Cat LudwigStudio's East meets Midwest photo. At first glance I thought it was an art work in the manner of antique Japanese woodblock prints. Well done!

    wow 15 days of celebration for the chinese new year! great! happy new year! year of the tiger sounds awesome. they are a beautiful animal. when I was younger and went to the zoo with my brother, the tiger had cubs, I guess the mama thought my older brother was a threat (he was only 8) and kind of barked/growled at him. my brother didn't move, not knowing she was growling at him, and the tiger lifted her leg, and like a fire hose, let 'er rip! he got sprayed in it! it was terribly funny, but the poor guy was only 8...to this day he is not a fan of tigers, but i am! haha

  • MesmerizeStudio

    MesmerizeStudio said 6 years ago

    15 days of celebration does not means 15 days of public holiday s..:] I live in Singapore where majority of the opulation is Chinese. We celebrate by eating ourselves silly and tossing this sweet concoction of shredded assorted vegetables salad with peanut and raw fish slices, usually salmon. It's called "yusheng". Your popularity with friends is judged by how many session of Yusheng you get invited. lol

    Happy New Year Unfortunately having complained to Etsy about this seller misrepresenting the produce of Chinese people. The Etsy response condoned this seller’s ban on Chinese goods and has yet refused to act. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=39075290 Even though 90% of US imported USB drives from China are authentic and made to internationally recognized standards.
