Gung Hei Fat Choi!
Today is Chinese New Year and we are now in the Year of the Ox. If you were born in the year of the ox (1901, 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, or 1997) you are probably a natural leader, dependable, patient, and hard-working.
Regardless of your year of birth, you can celebrate today by visiting relatives (especially your oldest relative), wearing new clothes (especially red in color), or visiting the Museum of Chinese in America , a fellow Museums of Lower Manhattan member. The MOCA promotes dialogue and understanding among people of all cultural backgrounds, bringing 160 years of Chinese American history to vivid life through its innovative exhibitions, educational and cultural programs. MOCA is currently located downtown on 70 Mulberry Street, in the heart of Manhattan's Chinatown on the second floor of the historic, century-old school building that was once Public School 23. In spring 2009, MOCA will move into a new, larger space on 211-215 Centre Street.
