I stumbled on this site by accident looking for information on Chinese holidays. I have lived in China for about 7 years independently studying Chinese culture and jade culture. What inspired me to do this was the vaste amount of misinformation and poor translations I found in western literature on China. I found many of the displays of jade and stone articles in museums mislabled and misrepresented. I saw some of these problems in your references on Chinese festivals and memorial days, which I will discuss in detail later. The interesting thing is I am not a historian, archeologist or Chinese scholar in any way. I am a geologist and artist. It is my intense interest in jade and oriental culture that began over thirty years ago in a search that lead me to China. Part of the result of this research is I am nearing completion of complete and comprehensive jade, jade-like stone, and jade culture dictionary. The reason for this is that jade represents the Rosetta stone of Chinese culture and the vaste misinformation and inaccuracies represent a barrier to understanding China. There are more charactors and words related to jade than any other subject, and this sub-language is largely lost in present day literature on China. Virtually every Chinese-English dictionary in print mistranslates yu as jade.

In China silk is silk and porcelain is porcelain, but long is not the dragon, fenghuang is not the pheonix, and yu is not jade.

It seems people have been defacing our map again... someone put a pin in the middle of Africa with derogatory comments, a pin out in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, etc. And there's some double pins in there from the same people as well.
