The year of the Rabbit will start on Feb. 16, 1999.
On the same day, another great portion of humanity will have the joy to celebrate Mardi Gras.
Chinese New Year is celebrated on the first day of the first Lunar month of the year. The party goes on for the first three weeks of the new moon.
Like in other cultures, New Year symbolizes the end of Winter and the beginning of Spring. All debts are paid, new clothes are bought, everything is cleaned. A new cycle begins.
All the Chinese people get a year older on Chinese New Year, it is everybody's birthday.
For many weeks before New Year, special food is prepared, homes are decorated with red and orange ornaments, scrolls are hung with good wishes : Good Health, Happiness, Happy New Year, Long life!
Look who's coming to dinner?
What a long movie... is about all you will hear if you listen to what people have to say when they come out of the theater after watching Martin Brest's "Meet Joe Black".
It took nearly 3 hours (2 hours and 58 seconds, to be precise) for Anthony Hopkins to finally meet who is behind Joe Black.
If some movies are intense because of their fascinating dialogues, this one will strike mostly by its silences. The artistic expected effects seemed to have been shadowed by a strict direction, and you spend long moments wondering what they are trying to show you.
The general outlook is not that the person has died but that the person has lived.
— William Buchanan, on writing obituaries
