All over the world, people love to celebrate with food.  So that is how we welcomed the Year of the Horse in China.  We are so thankful for old friends and new ones for making this Spring Festival festive and delicious.  May the food be plentiful, the red envelopes be full, and the fireworks and red colors drive the evil nian monster away.

Guo Nian Hao!

Since moving to China, we have seen the Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, and now, the Horse.  Next year, the Sheep.  And we may have to visit in 2019 for our birth animal, the lucky Pig.  To learn about the year you were born, check out this link:  http://www.chinesenewyears.info/chinese-new-year-calendar.php
