Happy Chinese New Year

Figured to get an early start on the upcoming significant holidays, even if we don't celebrate all of them.

I thought it was in spring time.
setting the new year in the middle of winter always seemed wrong to me,
just like starting the day at midnight, it is all wrong, the new day should start at sunrise, or maybe 6AM if you need a number for it.

CNY varies a bit, depending on the lunar cycle.  This year, it's Feb 5.  But yeah, midnight is silly in my mind, noon would make better sense to me.
