January 27, 2015 (Advanced) Kung Hei Fat Choi everybody! HAHA! Chinese New year isn’t until February 19 this year but HEY, it’s the thought that counts, amiright? ;) Chinese New Year was also declared a holiday this year which means NO CLASSES! That’s double the celebration! HAHA! Among other things, today’s entry includes some history, traditions, and superstitions. In our family, we like to celebrate with dinner on the eve of the new year. Typically, it involves lots of seafood and pork and tikoy. NO poultry allowed. We also usually have a spread of offerings laid out for a few weeks or so. OH, and we go all out with the red clothing. Today’s entry also includes personality profiles depending on your “spirit animal”. Mine goes something like this:
Rooster: 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017 They are capable and talented and like to be busy, devoted beyond the call of duty, and are devastated if they should fail – where would we be without all those early-morning cock-a-doodle wake-up calls? Despite giving the impression of being adventurous, they have a timid loner side. Roosters are thinkers, perhaps eccentric, but always interesting and brave. Best with Ox, Snake, and Dragon.
Well I can’t say I disagree…except for the early morning wake-up call part. I’d do anything to get some more minutes (or hours) of sleep. HAHA!
