Banned Bunnies

Abby Zimet

Today marks the lunar Chinese New Year. It's the Year of the Rabbit, in whose honor the Chinese government has banned a video showing a bunch of rabbits staging a revolt after a series of catastrophes that mirror real-life events in China. In our house we celebrate Tet, the Vietnamese New Year, though for elusive reasons it's their Year of the Cat. Either way: Chúc Mù'ng Năm Mó'i!
