happy new year!

Yesterday a bunch of us went out to dinner to celebrate the new year. Like most Chinese holidays, the Lunar New Year involves eating, which is fine with me.

I'm curious about how the Chinese co-opted the Lunar New Year and made it commonly known as "Chinese New Year", though. And, I wonder what the Koreans, the Vietnamese, and the Mongolians think about it.
