Chinese New Year is Jan. 31 this year!  2014 is the year of the horse.  My J has already started a special project about the origins, traditions, and celebrations of Chinese New Year.  Below are some awesome links we’ve found for this project.  The whole family has been involved with helping him and we’re all learning!
