Chinese new year, the year of sheep

Today is Chinese lunar new year! As we just said goodbye to the Year of Horse (2014), let’s welcome the Year of Ram, Sheep or Goat (2015)! No celebrations, no fireworks, no day off, no gift money, and no big dinner. I celebrated the day with teaching three classes and creating a new blog post here. I asked my JOUR415 students if they know anything special about today, one student was able to come up with a correct answer: Chinese new year. Awesome! Better than none.
