There were eight work colleagues with me; all were Chinese or of Chinese ancestary. It was a fun meal and made me wonder about having a rolling set of lunches to mark assorted New Years. A quick Google tells me that the Jewish Mew Year will start in September and the Muslim New Year a week before Christmas; giving me four parties across four months
