Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year fall on the same day in 2010

Both Valentine’s Day and the first day of the Chinese New Year will be celebrated on February 14.

I do recognize that not everyone cares about Valentine’s Day and not all people are Chinese.

But I’m sure there are many people who are really looking forward to celebrating the Day of Love.

And more than a billion of this planet’s inhabitants are Chinese. Add to that number those who are not Chinese, but follow some Chinese traditions.

How would people who have both characteristics spend that day? Especially the ones in China itself?

I can already see lots of fireworks.
