Happy Chinese New Year!

Molokai celebrated the Year of the Tiger last month when the Chungs’ organized the island’s first Chinese New Year Parade. But according to Chinese astrologists, Chinese New Year will take place on Feb. 14, 2010.

Kenneth Nip, a Molokai Public Library volunteer and one of the kupuna honored at the parade, set up a display at the library (pictured above), as he has for the past several years.

“It’s to let people here on-island know what Chinese New Year is all about,” Nip said.

The display has information on ‘tigers,’ or those born in the Year of the Tiger, as well as about Chinese traditions around this holiday. The display will be up until Sunday, Feb. 14 for everyone to check out.
