In America, it’s easy to forget that Chinese New Year is even happening. Akin to Christmas in China, no one in America gives a flying crap about a holiday based on an outdated calendar.
My boyfriend was no exception. Although he’s Chinese, he was way more excited about the super bowl.
“Am I allowed to watch super bowl?” he pleaded.
“What about Chinese New Year?” I frowned. “I thought we could make jiao zi (dumplings) together and watch a Chinese movie or something. You know, get in the spirit.”
