To celebrate Chinese New Year, a major English-language newspaper in Australia adopted a Chinese titlepiece on Thursday, the first day of Spring Festival.

The Sydney Morning Herald printed "Happy New Year" in simplified Chinese on its front page. The main photograph showed children celebrating the Year of the Ram, also known in the English-language world as the Year of the Sheep or Year of the Goat.

It was the first time that Australia's oldest newspaper had used a Chinese titlepiece.
