I took Chinese in High school and I only got 2 out of 5. Red symbolizes lcuk. Ms.Chen would say "AAYYYAA!!! Sleeping beauty. You should have been woke with your big eyes and paying attention" She was cool.

The holiday is called the LUNAR NEW YEAR. More cultures than the Chinese observe the lunar calendar such as Vietnamese & Koreans.
