Chinese New Year

Wheeeeeeeee!Since Mayor Red Ken's propaganda sheet The Londoner led me up the garden path about the start of Chinese New Year 2007, I've been wondering why celebrations in the UK begin on 18 February, which isn't the night of the new moon here. Thanks to the Feng Sui Web (a UK website for all those white middle-class Brits who currently follow this fad, which has something to do with flower arranging and deep breathing) I can tell you that the Chinese in Britain have got it wrong too! The second New Moon in Britain is this evening: 17 February. Trust Coxsoft Art and the Feng Sui Web: you're all a day late! Happy Year of the Porker.
