Today marks the start of the Lunar New Year. Avalyn is studying China this month, so we've cooked a few traditional dishes, learned a few words and phrases, and have a few fireworks to light tonight.
This is the year of the rat, the first of the twelve year cycle.
As with our western new year, I hope that this lunar cycle ahead is a joyful and prosperous one for you and yours. Things here are already shaping up to be an exciting and adventurous year ahead, still feeling on the precipice of great change.
Happy New Year!
Congratulations and be prosperous! May your happiness and longevity be complete!
