2011: The Year of the Rabbit
Happy Chinese New Year!
We find it oddly fitting that 2011 brings the year of the (jack)rabbit -- the fourth of twelve animal-based astrological signs in the Chinese calendar that symbolizes tranquility and calm.
And while we're busy trying to teach Mavis how to do a dragon dance, you can check out special New Year events around the Valley (and be sure to check out a drool-worthy list of celebratory food over on Chow Bella).
The week's festivals and banquets, including dances, art contests, Chinese meals, vendor booths, and kid-friendly activities, will be held at the Chinese Cultural Center at 668 North 44th St. in Phoenix.
