More than three weeks ago, the world welcomed 2012 with bubbles, sequins and perhaps a few midnight kisses. Today, those of us who have eastern roots that lead back to China, Vietnam, Taiwan and Malaysia are celebrating the Lunar New Year (commonly called Chinese New Year) with bright red clothes, loads of tasty food and a little extra green in our pockets.
This is one of my favorite holidays, and I love sharing the tradition with the ones I love. On Friday, the teacher man and I headed to my hometown to visit with family and friends and celebrate the year of the dragon, one of the luckiest signs of the Chinese zodiac. We stayed up late with cousins, uncles, aunts, nephews, friends and my mom playing games, eating traditional foods and drinking beer, all from the comfort of a home that was decked out in holiday decor.
Here’s a few scenes from my new year’s eve part 2 weekend. Gung Hay Fat Choy and Chuc Mung Nam Moi to all!
How was your weekend? Do anything fun? Cheers to a prosperous new year and a great week!
