It wouldn’t suprise me…

The DPP announced today a last minute addition to their ‘normal country’ draft resolution that ‘Chinese New Year’ will be renamed to ‘Taiwanese New Year’. This change comes on the heels of an amendment to drop the ROC Calendar in favor of the Gregorian Calendar. Party members at first had proposed scrapping the holiday altogether, but they ran into stiff opposition from those who were afraid of losing out on their week-long holiday. President Chen Shui-Bian was quoted as praising the move by saying, “Once we have a holiday named after Taiwan, A-Bian thinks it will be inevitable that other countries will recognize us as a normal country.”
