Happy Lunar New Year

Goat mosaic in circle of 12 Chinese zodiac signs. Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden.

I think the Chinese Lunar New Year started yesterday. It is currently 2 AM on February 20th in China, though in Vancouver, it is 10 AM on February 19th. The new moon was visible last night (or rather, the moon was entirely invisible last night 🙂 ). Tonight, 1% of the moon will be visible. In the Chinese lunar calendar, months begin on a new moon (dark moon).

  1. Wonderful mosaic, are you going to any celebrations in Vancouver’s China town this weekend?



    1. It is unlikely. I like mosaics and looking at the moon but I shy away from crowds. Thanks for appreciating the mosaic. They are such lovely additions to public spaces.
