BEIJING -- When the Year of the Sheep gave way to the Year of the Monkey with last night's lunar new year, the only Chinese not celebrating may have been China's family planning czars.In the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac, every year is represented by a different animal, and each animal's nature bears on that year's events. The zoology at hand goes all the way back to the 12 species that bade farewell to the Buddha upon his departure from this world.Sheep years aren't so hot. Sheep, a Chinese journalist recently explained, are animals "waiting to be slaughtered," and there were predictions this time last year of impending disaster.

YANGLIUQING, China -- When China's Communist rulers finally allowed free enterprise to begin, in the late 1970s, members of the Huo family didn't wait long to act. They had seen what decades of neglect had done to the art of woodblock printing and decided that the way to revive it was to ignore the state's monopoly and do it themselves.The small company they started, Yucheng Painting House, has become one of the most acclaimed makers of lunar New Year's posters, the ubiquitous pictures of fat babies, fish and flowers that are sold by the millions across China at this time of year.

BEIJING -- At precisely midnight on Sunday morning, when the Lunar New Year officially ushers in the Year of the Dog, Li Mingying intends to be cowering in her small apartment several blocks from Tiananmen Square. It is at that moment that 12 years of pent-up pyrotechnic frustration will be unleashed here in the national capital. "I'm afraid I'll be injured," said Li, who is 72. "I'm calling some children and telling them not to buy fireworks." Fat chance. This year, Beijing becomes the latest Chinese city to rescind a ban on fireworks during the Lunar New Year.

Happy New YearIt's time to celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year, the Year of the Boar, so I'd like to wish everyone "Feliz Ano Nuevo!" That's Spanish for "Happy New Year!" I would have wished you happy new year in Chinese, but I don't speak Chinese. I took Spanish in high school. But I bet I could find out how to say "Feliz Ano Nuevo" in Chinese at the Chinese Lunar New Year Festival being held today at Grace and St. Peter's Parish. The festival will feature Chinese dancing and music, including an audience sing-along, as well as tai-chi and karate demonstrations, theatrical performances and, of course, a really cool dragon.
