Chinese New Year begins on February 19th this year. It welcomes in the Year of the Goat. This year is also sometimes known as the Year of the Sheep or the Ram.

Last year, Josianne Fitzgerald did a wonderful guest post about Chinese New Year. It’s a great piece and an excellent place to start. Note: when I transferred old posts to my new WordPress site, much of the formatting got messed up. However, Josianne’s post still has lots of good stuff.
