Chinese family celebrating the Chinese New Year
Countdown to - Chinese New Year
Chinese New Year celebrations - year of the Rooster

According to tales and legends, the beginning of Chinese New Years started with the fight against a mythical beast called the "Nian". The "Nian" is afraid of red colour, fire, and loud sound. Therefore, for self protection, people posted red Dui Lian in front of the house, launched fireworks, and hung lanterns at year end.

Pancake Day History & Celebrations

The original idea behind Pancake Day was to use up all the fat in the house before Lenten abstinence. Folklore has it that parishioners, eager to reach church in time for the last 'shriving' or confession, would race through the streets still clutching their half-finished pancakes - the beginnings of the great pancake race tradition.

St. Patrick's Day History & Celebrations

St. Patrick is said to have given a sermon from a hilltop that drove all the snakes from Ireland. Of course, no snakes were ever native to Ireland. One traditional icon of the day is the shamrock, which stems from a more bona fide Irish tale that tells how Patrick used the three-leafed shamrock to explain the Trinity.
