Today begins the new Chinese year. Based on the lunar and solar cycles, it is the longest chronological record in history. It starts with the 1st new moon after the winter solstice and ends 15 days later with the full moon.

This 15th day is also known as the Lantern Festival and is the traditional day of the...Parade... Dragons! Lanterns! Excitement! In San Francisco, the parade will be on Saturday, February 7th.
