  4. Maybe because school term is open/LEARN is being used during Chinese New Year versus over the 2014 New Year?

  6. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha "regular" New Year. How about you realize that there's over 2 billion people on this planet that don't celebrate your "regular" New Year.

    1. How about you realise you live in Canada where January 1 is the regular new year.

    3. I think OP didn't mean to offend which is why they used " " and excused their term usage. But your reply begs the question... are they going to start only wishing people a "Happy __(insert holiday here)__" for which it is most relevant to most people on the planet than to people in Canada?

  8. I'm a Chinese and I'm somewhat surprised by how many Western people know about Chinese new year. There are a few other ethnic groups that have their own new years, but apparently we don't hear about them often.

    By the way, Chinese people do celebrate Jan.1 new years.

  9. It's also not just "Chinese" New Year, I have no idea why Western people call it that when it's celebrated by so many other countries. It's the lunar new year, that's it.

  10. Because the university is overwhelmingly descendants of white Europeans, and we find the Chinese New Year a novelty.
