reminds me of Easter.... they have it on a different date every year!

what's up with that? (as far as both Easter and the Chineese New Year go?)

I never understood how sometimes Easter is in March and sometimes it's the end of April/beginning/middle... you name it

As far as Easter goes, that was determined by the same group of jokers in 325 AD, the Roman emperor Constantine and the Council of Nicea, who determined that Christianity would be the empire's religion (sorry Arians, Meletians and Jews!); Jesus was actually divine; what books of the Bible were and weren't legitimate; and a whole bunch of other dogma. In their brilliance, they decided that the date of Easter was the first Sunday after the first full moon following the northern hemisphere's vernal equinox. Doesn't sound pagan at all now, does it?

That was my one previous trip to San Francisco. Those were some fun shows.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.

Me too, Chinese new years was my never miss, get you through the winter shows. I remember Bill Graham would have volleyball games on the floor before the show, east coast VS west coast. East coast always won.

Back in the old days we would have lots of firecrackers going off in Chinatown today. Then our mayor put an end to that. He was so successful with banning firecrackers, now he is going after soda pop. His heart is in the right place. Both firecrackers and soda can do damage. Still...
GUNG HAY FAT CHOY!


The streets of Chinatown in NYC would be lined with with paper from firecrackers.

It looked like snow it was so deep.

And that wasn't in just one spot, it was literally up and down the street.
Let us all look kindly on our neighbor.
