Hello everyone, ready for another week of HubMobbing? After a successful week with 35 hubs so far for our Small Business HubMob, this week we are going to go to a very fun topic. You already know that this year on February 14th most people around the world will be celebrating Valentine's Day, but did you know that February 14th is also the start of the Chinese New Year? In some parts of the world, the celebrations last for 15 days, the time that takes the new moon to become a full moon. Let's join in the festivities and write about The Chinese New Year.
Some ideas for a HubMob hub on the Chinese New Year are:
The origin of the Chinese New Year Regional customs and traditions for the Chinese new year The year of the tiger The dates for Chinese New Year, why do they vary every year. Legends Food Clothing The Chinese New Year in your country Festivities Practices Symbolism and superstitions Overseas parades Decorations

Let's celebrate Valentine's and Chinese New Year with a feast!!! You can wine and dine your loved one and ring in a new year with this small collection of traditional recipes. This is the first for me for this week's HubMob:
I will be giving this topic a miss, while I love and respect the Chinese people I would simply be copying and pasting from somewhere else as I know nothing about the Chinese new year.......I will however read all the hubs that are created about it so that I can inform myself...
This is the most important Chinese holiday of the year and almost everyone goes home for it. This means that the trains and long distance buses are packed to bursting, and invariably they stay happy, even for 20 hour + journeys. The students generally go first around the end of January then everyone else over the first week of February. They should mostly be home by yesterday which is the official start of the New Year with a minor banquet for family. Firecrackers are the most obvious sign that it is a special day, is customary to set them off before each meal. Here in the city there are enough, in the village everyone does it and the noise around dinner time is constant. The crackers are wrapped with red tissue paper that is blown apart and covers the roads and house fronts. Yesterday marks the start of the 7 day period up to THE day on the 14th. It is normal to spring clean before the 7th and then traditionally you don't put out the rubbish for 7 days, it is bad luck for anything to be put out of the house in this time. The markets close after tomorrow (the 10th) for one week, so I have been out stocking up and have another trip tomorrow to get some booze in as she has gone home for it and I am left to fend for myself! But then I am a foreigner - so I don't count.
My family and I are planning our Chinese New Year trip into LA Chinatown as we speak! Mostly I'm making a huge list of all the food I'm going to buy! Plus I gotta try out some of your recipes, Beth100. Hope everyone enjoys my hub: http://hubpages.com/hub/Ancestors-in-Ch … elebration
Not any more RM, you've got recognition too. You are doing a great job every week with the HubMob round up hubs. They can be very time consuming and you kindly give your time to promote the HubMob not every Hubber would be as dedicated as you are!
I was on a decent sleep schedule until tonight. I have delayed sleep phase syndrome, therefore have a 26 hr clock, therefore I have to take [natural] supplements to try to have a normal sleep schedule. I had a caffeinated soda early this afternoon, and 2 small pieces of chocolate tonight. When will I ever learn!?
Maita, I have tried lots of things. Unfortunately nothing seems to work long term, so I am constantly changing strategies. My naturopath gave me lemon balm drops which did not work. Skullcap has worked well, until suddenly it doesn't I have at least a half dozen diffent herbal tea varieties, and it didn't cross my mind to try them last night!
The Chinese New Year celebration is observed beginning the first day of the first moon of the lunar calendar. It is the most important of the Chinese holidays and is celebrated in many countries. The Chinese New Year celebration is a time for food, family, fellowship and pageantry.
I actually wrote my valentines day hub with the chinese new year as a special twist. I maybe could like to two if I can get a hub in in time! Time is so short just now but maybe I can get in on this one, might be a late comer tho .
Late is no problem! I continue to monitor the most recent HubMob (previous week along with current week) daily. I'll usually go back 2 to 4 weeks and look at the RSS a couple times a week. If in doubt, you can always email me. I do lots of late submissions myself!
Chinese New year is not unique in the world. There are many similarities between Indian New year and Chinese New Year. Both follow lunar calendar. Large numbers of customs and traditions are similar to that of India. What are the traditions and significance of Chinese New year? How Chinese celebrate it in China and outside China? What are the similarities with India? And lot more.....
Absolutely no deadline! Princessa never closes the question. Sometimes I don't get a firm HubMob hub idea until Friday or Saturday. I can be slow I frequently submit hubs to HubMobs from 1, 2, even 4 weeks back. I submitted 3 Toys hubs 4 weeks after the Toys HubMob launched. You miss some of the visibility and publicity of the HubMob week, but you can always continue to submit. And you can always email me to get it in the roundup hub.
Well... just in the nick of time, again! My contribution...
Start The Chinese New Year with the I Ching – Be Guided by Ancient Wisdom!
It happens on the new moon. It is the first lunar month of the year. Spring is only around the corner – between four and eight weeks after this event. What is it? This is the Chinese new year – year to commemorate the beginning of something new! A re-birth! Now is the time to make a future. People’s beliefs in China, look at this time as a time to consult the Chinese book of divination to tell them what to do.
Glad you got some much deserved rest RM. I was born at 11:00 p.m. so it's hard for me to go to sleep prior to midnight. Chamomile or sleepy time tea usually works for me (without any sweetener of course).
I think I was born in the afternoon, but my mom worked swing shifts, and my dad worked second shift when I was a baby. I think I've always been on second shift. But then I trained in a "first shift" career field.
I got an idea for another article and that is the fact that there may not be any wild tigers left on Earth when the Year of the Tiger comes around again in 2022. So here is a Hub about the tiger's plight and some things we can do to save them. http://hubpages.com/hub/Will-the-Curren … -the-Tiger
