Happy Year Of The Rooster/Capon — Make Some Noise!
How fitting that the Chinese Year of the Rooster coincides with our own Congressional Year of the Capon.
How to celebrate the Chinese New Year? Make some noise!
The first day is for the welcoming of the deities of the heavens and earth . . . it is a traditional practice to light fireworks and firecrackers and to make as much of a din as possible to chase off the evil spirits. On this day, it is considered bad luck to use the broom.
