Year of the Horse

Happy Chinese New Year!! This is the year of the Horse....2014!

This is our first Chinese New Year as A's parents. Even though he is not here with us yet, we will be celebrating & cannot wait for him to be here next year to join in the festivities.

What is the Chines New Year? Chinese New Year is an important traditional Chinese holiday celebrated at the turn of the Chinese calendar. In China, it is also known as the Spring Festival, the literal translation of the modern Chinese name. Chinese New Year celebrations traditionally run from Chinese New Year's Eve, the last day of the last month of the Chinese calendar, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first month, making the festival the longest in the Chinese calendar. Because the Chinese calendar is lunisolar, the Chinese New Year is often referred to as the "Lunar New Year."

So happy New Year every one! I wish you all nothing but the best.
