Good stuff to know if you are new (less than a year) to vaping!
The CNY is celebrated for many days (3-15) depending on what region, and factories tend to close for a whole week.Gung Hay Fat Choy! ... ... Monday, January 23, 2012 — The Year of the Dragon

Gung Hay Fat Choy! Happy New Year!
On the Western calendar, the start of Chinese New Year in 2012 falls on Monday, January 23, 2012 — The Year of the Dragon.
I was always aware of Chinese New Year because I attended elementary school in NYC's Chinatown and it was always an optional attendance day there. I'm not Chinese so I always went to school that day and only half the kids would show up on CNY. There was always the parade on Mott St. with the colorful dragon at the lead and the firecrackers everywhere.
Ah, but why would a vaper care? CNY 2011 was the first CNY after I started vaping so I didn't know or even imagine that my imported juices could be out of stock or on back-order. One of the things I learned in my first vaping year is to be stocked up on the popular imported juices or pre-filleds in time for CNY.
So, if this is your first CNY as a vaper, make sure you have your favorites on hand just in case. I would imagine the USA juices would not be affected by CNY.
Time to stock up on your Chinese favorites!
