Happy Lunar New Year to all my Chinese friends.

On Feb. 10, Asian American communities around the U.S. will ring in the Year of the Dragon with community carnivals, family gatherings, parades, traditional food, fireworks and other festivities. 

Surely it's only a number of East Asian communities that ring in Chinese New Year such as Korean and Vietnamese? I am surprised that a Japanese news outlet would write this considering the Japanese don't even celebrate Lunar New Year!

Really liked watching lion dances when I was a kid. It was very nostalgic seeing them again almost ten years ago being performed near Nagasaki Chinatown.

For all the JT crew who read kanji (I imagine that's quite a small percentage)
