A New Kind of New Year

A New Kind of New Year

Looking back, Chinese New Year has never been something I celebrated or even knew much about. I typically knew it was happening from the calendar alert in my phone and making sure to get orders in before the well deserved multi-week shutdown at the Chinese factories (in reference to my actual job).
