Sunday Reflection: Chinese New Year

No real reflection for this Sunday.

However, an interesting cultural note, "Happy New Year" in Chinese is (Xīnnián kuàilè - ping ying). The "controversy" is that "kuàilè" (Happy) sounds like "drop fast" and with all the recent turmoil in the market some Chinese have changed it to a different phrase meaning "Improve".

So "Improve New Year everyone!"
