Somehow I forgot to note that last night was the second new moon following the winter solstice.
That makes this the Chinese New Year!
So, happy new year, wherever you may be celebrating. Of course, if you are doing so in China, you are not reading this. F&V is far too subversive to be read in the PRC. Must be all that pornography about luscious apricots!
Also, the second new moon following the winter solstice is Rosh Chodesh Sh’vat, meaning the new year for trees is two weeks from today.
Rejoice, as spring is coming!
