On 28th of January

On 28th of January, PLEASE don’t accidentally offend people by saying Happy Chinese New Year to any Asian you bump into. Even the Chinese don’t say it. It’s called:
Chun Jie (spring festival) in China,
Tet (weather) in Vietnam,
Tsagaan Sar (white moon) in Mongolia,
Losar (new year) in Tibet, and
Seollal (new year) in Korea.
If you prefer a one-size-fit-all approach, “HAPPY LUNAR NEW YEAR” works like a charm.
