Belated Chinese New Year

“A thrilling time is in your immediate future.”


With all the craziness of this new year, I haven’t done a proper Chinese New Year post. So Happy New Year and gung hay fat choy! 

Monkey years are generally positive and optimistic, so I hope it’s a joyous one for you all. It’s a fire monkey year; fire monkeys tend to be ambitious and adventurous, but also irritable.

My celebration was pretty low-key this time around. Sure, we met up with family and had some delicious food, but we’re probably still recovering from our trip to Taiwan (does that count as pre-celebrating?)

But here’s a virtual lion dance to enjoy!

  1. I sure hope the year of the Monkey is a joyous one!

  2. Behind the Story says

    Happy Year of the Monkey, Jennifer.

    I can relate to the fire monkey — ambitious and adventurous and irritable all seem to cluster together for me. I focus on the first two and the third kind of sneaks up because I’m not giving myself enough quiet reflection time.

    Happy New Year!
