The Chinese New Year is a lunar calendar-based holiday.

The Chinese New Year starts on the day after the 2nd NEW MOON after the December Winter Solstice.


So, Chinese New Year 2021 starts Friday, February 12 as you can see from the Featured Image.

It can fall later DEPENDING on when the December New Moon was.

As you can see from the image above, it has — or can — fall later than February 12. OK?



Happy Chinese New Year 2021
(COVID be DAMNED).

President Biden Has To Stop Flying To Wilmington, DE, On ‘Air Force One’ — Makes No Sense.

Of course none of us begrudge him the use of ‘Air Force One‘ especially after the BLATANT abuse by ‘one whose name should NOT be mentioned‘.

It is JUST that it just does not make any sense. The distance involved it just too short.

From Andrews to the New Castle military airport he flew into only took 25-minutes!

It would also appear that the airport was too small to cater for the bona fide Boeing 747-based ‘Air Force One’. Instead he flew in on a 757 — (with ANY official Air Force plane carrying the President automatically & by default designated “Air Force One”).

Biden, per his TRADEMARK, needs to CONTINUE taking the TRAIN.

We used go back to having a Presidential Train. Yes, I appreciate that these days security might be an issue.

Appears that Nixon, in 1970, took the train.
