When I first realized that Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day is on the same day this year, I thought, oh no! Disastrous! Would I have to share my V-day with others? Would Chinese New Year get pushed aside at restaurants? The sky is falling! When the Chicken Little in me finally calmed down, I realized that this was not a tragedy at all. First, I was already warned that with our new apartment purchase, I was not getting any more presents in 2010, maybe 2011. Chinese New Year always means a delicious banquet and it still would. Those Chinese restaurants are not where people flock to for romantic dinners. Everything is fine (except for the no presents thing).
