Currently it is lunar new year and we have some days off. Students are often busy with studying and doing research therefore lunar new year is a nice chance to meet each other. It is not easy to buy, but we still try to buy some traditional food for eating and drinking together to celebrate lunar new year. Today, I have a long sleep till 10-11 am, after a meal, i watch movies, funny dramas. In the evening, i and my roommates will go to my friends' house to have dinner together. Lunar new year is truly my lazy time to enjoy my life...

I wish I had time to rest. My family likes to host friends although I like to laze around. Cannot help it, I have to run along with them, and there is work tomorrow. I feel tired. Sometimes I think public holidays are even more tiring than normal work days. Just my ranting, I guess.

yeah, i understand. It happens with all vietnamese women also since they have to buy food, cooking, washing, blah blah...during the lunar new year. But it is a chance for all people in a family meet and sharing each year. Better you should take rest 1-2 days first and then continue your work...

It's a long weekend for us. It's the third day of the Chinese new year. For the past two days, we have spent time shopping and museum-hopping. There are lots of activities related to the Chinese New Year theme for children at the museums. Thus, my daughter made Chinese drums, dragon puppets, and even face painting. We enjoyed ourselves a lot. Today, I think we shall rest at home. Tomorrow is a school/work day.

Well, as i explained above, people just think that it is Chinese new year, but it is the name for chinese people. In vietnam, we call it is Tet, and in Korea, it has another name. In practical, under any name in each country, it is the lunar new year because the new year is count based on the moon(lunar) calendar. Yeah, in here, we all are students so that i don't have anything to do, just eating, sleeping...the lunar new year is gone already and currently i have to go back to school but i still feel the lunar new year is somewhere, hihihi

I'm always in the wait of the lunar new year as we also get a lot of time to get away from our busy and hectic lifestyle. These are the only days in which i live my life king size and enjoy it to make it memorable. Do you also keep these as good memories...

It is a good reason for me stay in bed for more than 12 hours in a day. When I was a student, I have to spend a lot of time on studying. Even in the the Chinese new year, I have to spend several hours on studying. Now I am working as a teacher, I still have to study, but I can give me vocation for doing nothing. I think now student study too hard, they should have time to do something they like. If they have study so much time, they will lose their interests in study in the future.

I am not familiar with this lunar new year you mentioned. What is this all about? When you are talking about a Chinese new year, I think it is the year of water snake. And how is lunar year related to it? I need an added information about this lunar new year!

People often use "chinese new year", but the lunar calendar in vietnam is a bit different with the chinese lunar calendar. In vietnam, we don't call it as chinese new year, we call it as Tet. However, with any name in each country, it is actually the lunar new year.

Have a great lunar new year to you! You are entitled to being lazy then hehe. I would usually have a lazy long weekend during Chinese New Year back when I was still working for a Malaysian company. We also would have our bonuses given to us at that time.
