Regular Working / School Day on Chinese New Year

Philippines is home to a good number of Chinese that our culture is deeply influenced with Chinese traditions, practices and beliefs. In fact, Feng Shui is equally serious matter among non - Chinese Filipinos that Gregorian New Year's Eve is highlighted with fireworks to drive away evil spirits for the new year.

But, the Chinese New Year this 2011 falls on February  3 and commercial establishments are now filled with Chinese decors and Feng shui charms.  Unfortunately, the Philippine government declares 2011 Chinese New Year a working day but Chinese communities shall hold their festivities and may close their stores to honor the occasion.

To give due respect to our Chinese friends and acquaintances, we wish them a peaceful and productive 2011. myspace graphic comments
