Tonight is Chinese New Year’s Eve

posted in: celebrations, extended family

…and this year our family is holding the celebration HERE, in my mom’s house.

We’ll have the usual good food, the kids will get their ang paos, and we’ll all grow a year older, according to the Chinese way.

Tomorrow will officially be the start of the Year of the Rabbit.  I’ve read up on it, and while I generally am not a superstitious person, I like the fact that most predictions this year are positive.  It does not hurt to stay optimistic about the days ahead.

Too bad tomorrow is not a Holiday though, I sure could use the rest.  Oh well, the Philippine presidents don’t think that Chinese New Year is anything special anyway, except maybe for the tikoy they get.
