A festival that transcends boundaries
Revelers get ready to welcome the Chinese New Year. Reporting by Kelly Chung Dawson in New York, Zhang Haizhou and Zhang Chunyan in London, Chan Kin Sang and Simon Parry in Hong Kong, Karl Wilson in Sydney, Indrajit Basu in Kolkata, Esther AuYong in Singapore, Kitty Go in Tokyo, and Thana Poopat in Bangkok. On Feb 3, the majestic tiger will stride away and the genial rabbit will hop in to take its place as Chinese worldwide welcome in the lunar new year. The 12-animal zodiac of the Chinese calendar is an enduring symbol of one of the globe's most important annual festivals. Yet, for many families, cultural customs are giving way to modern-day conveniences. More people in the East and West now choose to hold celebrations and reunion dinners in restaurants, instead of at home. Change is inevitable, however, and as Viroj Tangvarnich, a Bangkok-based expert on Chinese culture, explains: "What really counts are good intentions." Despite its evolution, the lunar new year - chunjie or Spring Festival in China - is an event that still tugs the heartstrings of Chinese everywhere and is a celebration of thanksgiving. In homes across China, Australia, the US, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Britain, the Philippines, Thailand and India, the Year of the Rabbit will be met with parties, feasts and firecrackers. China Daily took a whistle-stop tour to find out more.

Australia The Year of the Rabbit will be welcomed with a bang and three weeks of celebrations across Australia, as the lunar new year holidays continue to grow in popularity, said Albert Yen, president of the Sydney See Yup Society, the country's oldest Chinese organization, dating back to the 1850s. "New year is still very important to Chinese whether they were born here or moved here from China," he said. "I can't say how many people come to Sydney's Chinatown or Little Bourke Street in Melbourne, but over the years we've noticed more people are taking part." Celebrations in Sydney will be "bigger and better" than last year, with lion dances, fireworks, dragon boat races and many other cultural events. In Melbourne, a giant lion made up of more than 200 people will parade through the streets. The cities boast Australia's largest Chinese communities. "The celebrations remind Chinese of their heritage, and for the non-Chinese is a bridge towards better understanding," said Yen.
