    Chinese New Year is JAN 31, 2014
    Say hello to Chunyun, the chaotic mass migration that happens every Chinese New Year
    Philip Kendall 56 minutes ago



    Remember that old schoolyard fable warning that, if all the people in China – for some reason simultaneously going mad and deciding to destroy both themselves and the entire planet – were to jump up and down at the exact same moment, the earth would be thrown out of its orbit? Well, apologies to anyone who has been monitoring the situation since they heard this doomsday prophecy, but it’s total nonsense. If you were to map the movement of the population of China over the coming week, however, you would indeed see something that really is quite spectacular.

    Known as Chunyun, the weeks immediately before and after Chinese New year (which falls on January 31 this year) are recognised as the period during which the world’s largest human migration occurs. An estimated 3.6 billion trips will be made across various parts of China in the coming weeks as families return to their homes to celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of another. And that means a lot of traffic jams, very cramped train journeys, and a people sleeping wherever they may lay their head.

    Chunyun, also known as the “Spring Festival” travel season, usually begins around 15 days before Chinese New Year. In accordance with tradition and the belief that beginning the new year with one’s family is of vital importance, billions of people pack into cars, buses and trains for long-haul journeys home.

    For those on a budget, however, that often means forgoing comfort for the sake of simply getting where they need to be, resulting in some seriously cramped conditions as shown in the following photos shared today by Japan’s Toychan Net.

    ▼ All aboard…



    ▼ The sleeeepy traaaain~






    Good luck to everyone in China who’s just trying to get home this coming week!

    Let the mass migrations begin.
    It's like thanksgiving in America, but with 3x the traffic!

    Moving away to work sucks donkey balls.
    When it becomes a cultural norm, what the heck?

    Jiddu Krishnamurti was right.

    Enjoy your time with your family.
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    That free for all mentality is insane. I'm the guy who would be using the thip from the inside. 'the fuck outta here with that.

    I remember taking the train to work back in the day and it would be standing room only and you would always have those jerkoffs who rock out the whole spread, taking three seats with the laptop set up and all that. Or those most considerate individuals that line up all nice and orderly then when the train gets in they bumrush the door, not letting people off.

    Was it here where somebody posted that video of the idiot holding the train doors open and some cat kicked them out of the doorway and on to the platform? Awesome.

    I like order. I'm the guy who will only walk up the right side of a staircase. Anything less is just uncivilized.

    London Eye lit red, gold for Chinese New Year
    English.news.cn 2014-01-31 07:44:40

    Lion performance is seen near the London Eye lit red to celebrate Chinese Year of the Horse in London, Britain, on Jan. 30, 2014. (Xinhua/Yin Gang)

    LONDON, Jan. 30 (Xinhua) -- London Eye, the landmark of London City, for the frist time transformed its usual blue lights into red and gold on Thursday evening to celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year, or the Spring Festival, which falls on Jan. 31.

    In a cold drizzle, people stopped by the giant Ferries whell on the South Bank of the River Thames. Among them are many Chinese who came to witness the change of lights for the Spring Festival celebrations.

    Before the lights turned into red, several performances including singing, martial art and lion dance were held under the Eye.

    A team with ten children from the Risley Avenue Primary School, who wore the vibrant red coat with gold circle patterns, sang Chinese traditional song Happy New Year (Xinnianhao) for the audiences at the scene.

    "The children did very well," said Robert Singh, head teacher of the school, especially given that "Teachers taught them the song just one week ago." He said kids at his school are multinational and share multi-culture.

    "We appreciate the Chinese traditional culture...we'd like to make more people respect Chinese culture by singing the song on the eve of the Chinese New Year," said Robert.

    Jiang Tao, executive director of the National Young Cultural Ambassador Activities, on Thursday led his about 60-strong children performance team from Beijing to London Eye to sing a song and entered the capsule of the Eye.

    They were invited to give Beijing opera performances in London in the following days for the Chinese New Year's celebration.

    Jiang, who is spending his first Spring Festival outside the Chinese mainland, said he was much impressed by the richness of celebrations for the Chinese New Year in London's Chinatown, which has been decorated with red lanterns and colorful banners.

    "I'm so proud and excited to see that the London Eye changed the color for the Chinese New Year in particular, which will also inspire the young players in my team," he said.

    Qiao Bang, a young Taiwanese who is studying in London, visited the London Eye with his girlfriend on Thursday, and was stunned by the beauty of the lights.

    "I miss festival meals at my home in Taiwan so much, which usually includes many fish and chips," said Qiao, adding that Chinese students in his university would have a small celebrating party for the Spring Festival.

    A series of activities, including the New Year's Parade, performances such as acrobatics, traditional dances and a gravity-defying lion dance on high poles, will be held in West End, Chinatown and Trafalgar Square for festival celebration.
