Happy Chinese New Year!

If you happen to encounter some people running around in an elaborate dragon or lion costume at your Chinese food establishment of choice today, don't panic. It's Chinese New Year! And 2008 is the Year of the Rat (or Wu Zi).

I bet Remy's off to get (or, better yet, cook) some dumplings, sticky rice cake, or other such traditional holiday dishes.

Congratulations and be prosperous! Oh, and don't buy shoes or books, or talk about death today. Bad luck.
