Welcome to the Year of the Rooster

Happy New Year! In China, January 28th ushers in the Year of the Rooster. The Lunar New Year Festival, or Spring Festival, begins today and runs through February 15th. It is expected to be, as usual, the largest migration of humans of the year, as around 3 billion trips will be made, mostly to hometowns.

People born in the Year of the Rooster are "brave, responsible and punctual." Huy Fong Foods founder David Tran was born in the Year of the Rooster 72 years ago, which is why there's a rooster on the Sriracha sauce bottle.

Mental_floss has a list of things you might want to learn about the Chinese New Year.

The above image is fromwebcomic artist Dami Lee, who is spending the holiday with her family in Korea.
