Happy Chinese New Year!
Tazim's Weekly Feature


This year, 2004, Chinese New Year is on January 22. The date of the New Year is determined using the lunar/solar calendar rather than the Western calendar. The date for Chinese New Year changes from year to year but always occurs in January or February. Traditionally, Chinese New Year lasts for fifteen days.

It is the Year of the Monkey. If you don't know your animal in the Chinese zodiac, check it out on the links that follow.

Chinese New Year is an important celebration throughout the world. In Japan, Korea and Vietnam, it is known as the Lunar New Year or Spring Festival.

To all our students who celebrate this day, the staff at PALC wish you all Gung Hai Fet Choy!
