One person wrote:

"Excellent photos! This is what celebrations should be all about; none of the offensive ethnic garbage that I've been seeing on the other photo gallery at this website.

I am a little concerned about the perceptions from those not familiar with the culture though; a reporter on the CBC radio this morning made a distinction between males born of the ox as 'ox' while females are 'cows'...In the Chinese sense, I don't think that makes much sense"
