The Chinese New Year Celebration of the Rabbit started in a big way over the weekend and it will continue until the full moon on Thursday, February 17. The local celebration is hosted by the Little Bloomsbury Foundation. Executive director Dr. B.C. Sun says there is an event Thursday, Feb. 10 at 10 a.m. at the Cache County Senior Citizen Center, one at Deseret Industries Friday, Feb. 11 at 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Celebrations are also scheduled Saturday, Feb. 12 at the North Logan Library and the Logan Library. Dr. Sun says this is a good time to look at some of the good habits of the Chinese people. She says young people have goals and they study about 10 times harder than their counterparts in this country. “They respect their parents and their teachers very, very much. It’s an important part of the culture,” Dr. Sun says. “Another aspect that we would like everyone to know is that the average savings rate among the Chinese is 40%, meaning if we are competing in a global economy we really need to look aside at our neighbors to see what they are doing. “If the savings rate is so high that means they will be the investor of the 21st century.” Dr. Sun says this is a good time to study some of the good habits of the Chinese and apply them in our own lives.
