A: Happy New Year!
B: Uh...I'm a bit confused; New Year's Day was over weeks ago.
A: You must be kidding! It is Chinese New Year, silly!
B: Oh right, it slipped my mind. Why do you celebrate two New Years?
A: Chinese New Year is according to the lunar calendar. Chinese have been celebrating New Years in this fashion for thousands of years.
B: I noticed that our company was very empty the past couple of days.
A: That is because everyone goes home for Chinese New Year; it is a family holiday, not so much a party holiday. Would you like to come to my house for New Year's Dinner?
B: Of course. Will you set off firecrackers?
A: Naturally, but the most important thing that we do during New Years is to eat! So make sure to bring your appetite!
