"Happy New Year"
|Ring in the YEAR OF THE SHEEP|
(Goat or Ram)
It's another New Year CELEBRATION. We all love celebrations. This particular New Year time brings a spectacular celebration for the Chinese community. A celebration for new beginnings, family, and positivity. During this festive time the Chinese start to clean their homes, throwing away garbage, and dirty things in light of a new start. It's the year of SHEEP- gentle and calm. Most will be eating noodles for longevity, whole fish for abundance, wearing or decorating red (brightness, happiness, energy, and positive hopes), displays of tangerines and oranges for prosperity (wealth and luck), giving red envelopes of money to children, parents, and friends for best wishes of the new year.

Enjoy the celebration!
