Chinese New Year 2014 in Montgomery County, MD

The Lunar New Year is again upon us, this year falling on January 31st.  The Year of the Horse! Since I too am the year of the horse, that means I'm the ripe old age of....12! =P

The Chinese New Year is a 15 day event that starts with the New Moon on the first day of the new year and ends on the full moon 15 days later.  With such a large Chinese population in the DC region, there is no shortage of celebration events.  Here are just a couple.
