The Lunar New Year festivities in Chinatown, New York were celebrated with the traditional drums, lion dancers, and dragon dancers. This year in the Chinese zodiac is the year of the ram, or of the sheep, or of the goat – the Chinese language does not distinguish between sheep and goats, so take your pick. Happy New Year to all our Asian friends.
