The Tsukuba Information Center will present one more "new year" in February ?? the Chinese New Year. As the traditional Chinese calendar is a lunar calendar, the date according to the modern calendar varies from year to year. This year, it falls on Feb. 19, but we will be celebrating it a bit early, on our regular "2nd Wed. of the month" coffee hour. Ms. Kei, from China, will share with us some Chinese customs, such as why "gyoza" (a popular food here in Japan too) is such an important part of the celebration, etc. The coffee hour begins at 2 pm and lasts until 4, but you are welcome to come and go at any time. See you there!
