      Chinese new year celebrated

      Many of us rang in 2014 on Jan. 1, but on Friday, many Asian Americans celebrated the start of the Chinese New Year. The tradition goes back centuries and this time is usually marked with food, family, entertainment, and red envelopes.

      Dong Xiang and Linda Wang with the Asian Community Service Center joined NewsChannel 8 Saturday morning to talk about the celebration planned in Falls Church.
