Happy Lunar New Year! It’s the year of the Horse!
I’ve always had an affinity for Asian culture and each year I make it a point to celebrate the Lunar New Year. Some years I cook my own Asian food and some years, like this one, I order take out. The point of celebrating the event, for me, besides its being such a wonderful holiday, is carrying on the tradition of an event that is filled with remembrance of the past, new beginnings, gratitude, and just plain old positivity. It makes me very happy.
My dream is to one day celebrate the Lunar New Year in a country or city that goes all out; dancing, paper lanterns, dancing puppets, and fireworks – the whole nine yards! For now, I enjoy a day of SinoTV, Asian store shopping, and Asian food.
