I want calendar to display the Chinese new year. I put this into 
~/.emacs without any luck

  (setq holiday-other-holidays
   '((holiday-chinese month day "Chinese New Year")))

It would be nice if the string Chinse New Year would include the 
character for the symbol for tha year such as 龙 or 龍 for dragon.

This feature already exists, no configuration required.  Open Calendar
and type `a'; a window should be displayed containing:

Monday, January 1, 2024: New Year's Day
Monday, January 15, 2024: Martin Luther King Day
Friday, February 2, 2024: Groundhog Day
Saturday, February 10, 2024: Chinese New Year (Jia-Chen)
Wednesday, February 14, 2024: Ash Wednesday
Wednesday, February 14, 2024: Valentine's Day
Monday, February 19, 2024: President's Day
Monday, March 11, 2024: Ramadan Begins
Sunday, March 17, 2024: St. Patrick's Day
Wednesday, March 20, 2024: Vernal Equinox 11:06am (CST)
Thursday, March 21, 2024: Bahá’í New Year (Naw-Ruz) 181
Friday, March 29, 2024: Good Friday
Sunday, March 31, 2024: Easter Sunday

Patches welcome, provided that the feature is optional.  I would rather
the holiday window confine itself to Latin text by default.

Sorry I was not clearer. I meant the holiday would be displayed every 
year, not just what the date happens to be this year.
