Happy Chinese new year everyone!

The advantage of being Chinese is that I get to celebrate two new years every year, he he. This year Chinese new year falls on February 3 (the date is determined by a lunar calendar) and is considered "the year of the rabbit". Chinese the world over will probably be celebrating with family feasts, loads of firecrackers and red packets (hong bao) of money for the children. In fact, countries such as China and Singapore, have several days of national holidays to celebrate the new year. Unfortunately, in Australia Chinese new year barely raises a blip on the radar, with celebrations only being held in individual homes, churches (as my church does every year) and by local councils in areas highly populated by Chinese. To help you all join in the fun, I have found some fun and beautiful rabbit-themed artworks. Enjoy!
